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.
