The Value of Energy Analysis, from Design Day One, August 8
Event Description

This interactive program will provide attendees with a charrette experience for evaluating and driving building energy performance—to analyze results in real time, as early as pre-design. During this session, volunteer participants act as design team members from all disciplines, working with real building characteristics and an actual building design. Using an analysis approach that assists with a cost benefit discussion, the participants will assemble “bundles” of selected energy efficiency measures to play out what-if scenarios, discussing the merits and challenges of each bundle. This program, with live tools and facilitation, will demonstrate an effective method for guiding energy decision-making during early design, towards achieving higher efficiency goals and increasingly stringent energy codes.
