This is a two-day course that introduces new users to the functionality of the TREAT building modeling software, and will teach techniques to speed the modeling process for even experienced TREAT single family modelers. The instructor will review core concepts of the software and students will create their own model as a class exercise. Upon completion, students will have the ability to use TREAT for one to four family energy audits. This includes modeling, health and safety tracking, basic utility bill true-up, the creation of improvements, packaging improvements and creating reports. Students must bring a laptop that has TREAT software already installed and registered.
The course is comprehensive and will cover apartment sampling, energy model calibration, modeling strategies, data entry problem solving, billing analysis, quantifying interactions between systems, predicted energy savings, and calculating SIRs. A three-day classroom training on the multifamily version of the TREAT modeling software.
This is a review of the functionality of the TREAT building modeling software, and will teach techniques to speed the modeling process for even experienced TREAT single family modelers. This class will provide an overview of the TREAT essentials needed to become productive quickly. Students must bring a laptop that has TREAT software already installed and registered.
This 2-day hands-on course will teach students how to leverage the free NREL OpenStudio modeling ecosystem to quickly and efficiently generate flexible models for energy analysis. Students will learn effective modeling workflows for using the OpenStudio Sketchup Plugin to construct building form and fabric and assigning space attributes. HVAC and service hot water systems will be configured using the OpenStudio Application. The OpenStudio Application integrates with NREL’s Building Component Library (BCL), providing libraries of pre- defined configurable energy conservation measures for easily modifying energy models. PAT (Parametric Analysis Tool) will be used to demonstrate how model variants can be configured to run in cloud computing environments (Amazon EC2). Students will also be exposed to OpenStudio’s capabilities for extension through Ruby Scripting, both for creating custom energy conservation measures and for generating useful summary and detailed output.
Managing, deciphering, and tracking data can be a challenge. Whether you need to benchmark buildings, track energy conservation measures, evaluate the effectiveness of a program, measure savings, or generate reports, Compass helps you navigate the data tide. Compass aligns the needs of multiple stakeholders—including program administrators, service providers, QA staff, portfolio owners and financing providers—with one easy-to- use web-based tool.
