Energy Modeling Conference, BEMP Certification Hosted In April
February 23, 2011

The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineer’s (ASHRAE) Energy Modeling Conference: Tools for Designing High Performance Buildings, April 4th-6th, 2011, ASHRAE Headquarters, Atlanta, Ga., will provide hands-on modelers and principals with the information to better harness the power of energy modeling tools. The conference covers modeling fundamentals, building component contributions, software demonstrations and case studies. A collaborative perspective is provided that demonstrates how energy models and computer simulations can assist all project team members in creating energy-efficient buildings.

For complete information or to register, visit Registration is $500 ($450, ASHRAE, AIA and USGBC members).

In addition, on April 6th, the U.S. Department of Energy is launching its development roadmap for EnergyPlus, OpenStudio, EPGUI and other tools. Attendees can provide feedback on the roadmap and on DOE’s general activities in the simulation tools area.

Also on April 6th, ASHRAE will administer its Building Energy Modeling Professional (BEMP) certification examination. The BEMP certifies an individuals’ ability to evaluate, choose, use, calibrate and interpret the results of energy modeling software when applied to building and systems energy performance and economics and to certify individuals’ competence to model new and existing buildings and systems with their full range of physics. Certification applications (submitted online) must be received by ASHRAE 30 days prior to the exam. The application fee is $415 ($295 ASHRAE member).
