Energy modeling is a design aid and performance evaluation tool that serves a variety of needs of the client, the design team and permitting authorities. Clients who hire energy modeling services deserve to understand what information is fed into an energy model and they deserve results that support decision making processes. This session presents examples from multiple energy modeling firms of methods that optimize the usefulness of energy modeling input and output data. Three presenters from different firms will offer insights and facilitate a discussion during this 45-minute technical session.
