Building Energy Simulation Forum on April 15, 2015

Andrew Parker, engineer for National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s Commercial Buildings Research Group, will present an overview of the new Energy Design Assistance Program Tracker, EDAPT, at the Building Energy Simulation Forum on April 15, 2015. The presentation will also cover how linking EDAPT to the OpenStudio energy modeling platform decreases modeling time and helps automate model quality assurance and quality control.

Utility design assistance programs provide financial incentives for new building owners to identify and implement energy-efficiency measures. EDAPT is a web-based tool that helps utilities and energy modelers overcome some of the challenges these programs face, including cost, time constraints and quality control.

About the presenter:
Andrew Parker joined National Renewable Energy Laboratory in 2010. His goal is to help high-efficiency building design become commonplace by making energy analysis tools more accessible. Andrew works closely with the OpenStudio development team, focusing on product design and the needs of non-researchers. He also works with utilities and third-party companies who are using the tools developed in Commercial Buildings Research Group. Andrew is particularly interested in the improvement of software for the energy auditing space, and was the project manager for a large Department of Defense Environmental Security Technology Certification Program, ESTCP, project working with a third-party company to develop and demonstrate a mobile energy auditing tool.
