EnergyPlus started in 1996 with the goal of creating a next generation energy modeling program by combining the good features from DOE-2.1E and BLAST. The use of EnergyPlus is accelerating due to the needs of code compliance (with California Title 24, ASHRAE Standards 90.1 and 189.1), performance rating (under USGBC LEED), incentive programs, and design of low energy buildings. This seminar will provide an overview of EnergyPlus, and introduce the latest development and applications focusing on the following areas:
Main challenges and the future of EnergyPlus will be discussed too. Please join us to learn, to question, to provide feedback, and to share your experience with EnergyPlus.
