Connected Buildings Challenge

E-mail sent by Supriya Goel, Monday, July 18th, 2016 @ 3:16pm

Dear IBPSA-Seattle Members

This email is to inform you about the Connected Buildings Challenge (CBC), that is being led by the Pacific Northwest National laboratory (PNNL) for the US Department of Energy (DOE) in partnership with leading industry entities.

Connected Buildings Challenge focuses on solutions addressing barriers of connected buildings using PNNL’s open source software platform VOLTTRON.  CBC has selected 5 finalists for the ongoing challenge and would like to extend an invitation to you to attend the demo of the current Connected Buildings Challenge in Seattle, on August 3rd 2016, at the Smart Buildings Center (SBC), Pacific Tower, 1200 12th Ave. S., Suite 110, Seattle, WA 98144 · 206-538-0685. This is a free event. Space is limited - so
register now if you are interested.

For more information please contact Ms. Xiaoli Duan at xiaoli.duan@pnnl.gov or cbchallenge@pnnl.gov

Nepal Biogas Project Modeling Support - Volunteers Needed

Posted by Member 1b7a947, Monday, June 15th, 2015 @ 4:49pm

  • Fellow Modelers:
    Below here is a request for volunteers to assist Architects without Borders on a modeling project in the Nepal region affected by the recent earthquake.

    Please contact Carmen directly, if you can help.

    Thanks, -krishnan

    A few weeks ago I mentioned the Mt. Everest Nepal Biogas project I'm volunteering with. I've attached a basic flier of information about the project. We are working with Architects Without Borders and they have helped prepare a SketchUp model. I started an Open Studio model but not yet finished it.

    We are in need of Energy Modeling and Mechanical engineering design support. Would it be possible to announce this volunteer opportunity to the IBPSA group? 

    I have placed the relevant modeling files , as well as an SD Basis of Design, on our Dropbox folder. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/57u9pfau6rkaf5j/AABFtygrHZJrBt4sVvpDBkwza?dl=0

    Please note that the weather files came from Weather Underground and are "simulated" based on the latitude/longitude.

    Let me know if you have any questions or need further information. Thanks in advance for your support!

City of Seattle Research Project

E-mail sent by Supriya Goel, Monday, April 13th, 2015 @ 5:19pm

Dear IBPSA Seattle Members,

The City of Seattle is working with PNNL on a research project that looks into the role energy modeling plays in advancing client goals, such as: Does the modeling process result in better daylight and views, or perhaps elimination of unwanted systems? Does it encourage early adoption of higher performing technologies?

For this purpose, the City of Seattle would appreciate any assistance that IBPSA Seattle members can provide.

As an initial step, it would help if members could provide a couple dozen real-world examples of energy modeling results, particularly where the project involves significant variance from the prescriptive code.

Only the summary sheets of energy modeling analysis are required, and, where available, the sensitivity analyses results. The data can be scrubbed of any client or project identification where anonymity is preferred.

If the modeler's contact information were attached, it would allow the researchers to call if they had any specific questions, although this information is not required.

Please contact Duane Jonlin at Duane.Jonlin@seattle.gov if you’d like to contribute.
