Owners are starting to see the value of energy efficient design, whether they plan to pass the property onto tenants or occupy the building themselves. In this presentation, we will cover what creating an energy model of a building entails, how early in the design process an energy model can aid in decision-making, which ECM's (Energy Conservation Measures) are worth looking at, and which ones offer little to no life-cycle payback. We will then run through an interactive case study where the audience helps to create the most energy efficient building they can given a set of constraints.
