Energy use is rightfully a strong component of the sustainability initiative in buildings, taking its place as a leading metric in evaluating a building’s performance.;
GE3S offers a coordinated curriculum of eQUEST energy modeling training, designed to help students master the marketable skill in Energy modelling.GE3S provides comprehensive commercial energy modeling course to educate professionals on how to master eQUEST, the free “Quick Energy Simulation Tool” developed by the U.S. Department of Energy and other industry leaders. Participants will learn to build and run energy models using EQUEST.
This course covers the essentials of building energy modeling and explains how to use modeling to guide design decisions. It provides modeling tips related to the building envelope, plug loads, lighting systems, and HVAC systems. Attendees will gain a clear, in-depth understanding of the theory and practice of building energy modeling, and will also have the opportunity for hands-on building simulation experience during the training.
