Building Energy Simulation Forum webinar on Energy modeling for compliance with 2021 Oregon Energy Efficiency Specialty Code

SEPTEMBER 8, 2021 | 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
  • This event has passed.

Join Energy Trust of Oregon and the Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (NEEA) on September 8 for an hour and a half training on the ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2019 Appendix G and Section 11 modeling protocols.

This Building Energy Simulation Forum (BESF) will provide an overview of new modeling-based compliance options in the state energy code.

Our presenters will cover the general concepts of the ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2019 Appendix G and Section 11 modeling protocols (which recently went into effect on April 1, 2021, becoming fully effective on October 1, 2021), highlight their similarities and differences, and summarize the simulation requirements and compliance calculations.

In addition, several significant prescriptive path changes from the prior code will be covered. The 2019 edition of ASHRAE’s energy standard includes more than 100 updates since the last edition was published in 2016.
