Joe Huang has been at LBNL since 1981, working primarily in analyzing building energy performance using DOE-2 simulations. His current work including research into low-energy cooling technologies in both residential and commercial buildings, evaluating the energy savings from improved HVAC systems and controls in a large office building in San Francisco, and developing simulation-based user programs which is the subject of his talk today. Joe will compare the advantages and disadvantages of interactive simulation-based PC programs to parametric data base methods with which he has direct experience, having created the DOE-2 data bases of residential building energy use used for ASHRAE 90.2 residential energy standard and DOE\'s COSTSAFR and ARES voluntary energy guidelines.
