Future-Proof: Building Energy Modeling for the Future

When: 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM WEDNESDAY, MAY 31

Where:Building Energy Exchange 31 Chambers Street Suite 609 New York, NY 10007

Energy modeling is a critical tool in efforts to draw down the carbon footprint of our buildings. But the projections these tools make about energy use rely almost universally on historic climate data. Since climate change will significantly alter future heating and cooling seasons, today's building designs may not perform as expected. Well-intended efforts to improve building energy efficiency as a means to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and reduce energy costs may not yield the expected results unless future regional climate variability is considered in the energy modeling phase. This is a critical discussion in the face of New York City's climate goal of reducing citywide greenhouse gas emissions 80 percent below 2005 levels by 2050. Join Building Energy Exchange for a discussion with consulting engineering firms RWDI and Entuitive on methods and analyses used to predict, and prepare the built environment for future climate.
