Register for Building Energy Simulation Forum on December 14

OpenStudio is the U.S. Department of Energy’s platform for whole building energy modeling. Software developers, energy modelers and utility programs worldwide are adopting it because of its broad range of capabilities.

Register for the last Building Energy Simulation Forum of 2016 to learn about OpenStudio, network and celebrate the beginning of the holiday season. During this presentation, Andrew Parker from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory will cover a few key topics of interest to modelers who are currently using or considering using OpenStudio, including:

  • Baseline Model Automation: Take a behind the scenes look at this OpenStudio feature to understand how it works, what the limitations are and how the modeling community can modify it
  • Parametric Analysis Tool 2.0: A demonstration of the new user interface for performing parametric studies
  • OpenStudio Roadmap: A preview of what’s in store for OpenStudio in 2017, including new features and significant new areas of adoption

About the presenter:
Andrew Parker
Engineer, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory

Andrew is an engineer working in the National Renewable Energy Laboratory Commercial Buildings Group. His goal is to help make high-efficiency building design commonplace by making existing energy analysis tools more accessible and creating new tools in markets where none currently exist. Most recently, Andrew developed the Baseline Model Automation feature and led a multi-lab team in the transition of the Department of Energy Prototype Buildings into OpenStudio. Previous projects of note include the development of an energy design assistance program tracker and mobile energy-auditing tool, simuwatt Energy Auditor.
