Energy Conservation Modeling for Weatherization
May 25, 2011
This Webinar is an encore presentation of the April 27 Webinar of the same name, which was canceled due to severe weather.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Technical Assistance Program (TAP) presented a Webinar titled Energy Conservation Modeling for Weatherization on May 25, 2011. In this Webinar, the presenter explained how estimating potential and possible savings is the first step to determining whether or not an energy conservation measure is feasible.
This webinar briefly described models that estimate energy use before and after energy conservation measures are installed in a building, as well as modeling and energy estimation techniques designed to handle various complexities found in energy conservation measures. The presenter also discussed the kinds of modeling techniques that grantees can apply to different energy conservation measures.
This webinar featured one presentation:
