Building better energy modelers
Join us for an insightful presentation by energy modeling professional and educator Megan Tosh, who will share tactics for energy modelers looking to improve their skills and for employers wishing to build a team of top modelers. Megan will discuss specific strategies and recommend supporting materials for more effective energy modeling.
As design teams increasingly rely on modeling results to inform decisions, energy modelers have an opportunity to impact how people think about building energy usage. How can we advance our industry and our technical skills at the same time? How can we demonstrate the value of performance-based modeling to our clients? Drawing on the inspiration that called many to energy modeling in the first place, this Building Energy Simulation Forum focuses on helping energy modelers apply their unique skills to problems facing the building industry today.
