| eQUEST is an easy-to-use building energy simulation tool. Although eQUEST is primarily applied to new construction, it can also be used to apply the principles of energy modeling to conserving energy in existing buildings. This training will be targeted towards users already familiar with eQUEST, giving attendees the skills needed to apply an improvement-driven modeling approach to enhancing existing buildings in an effort to identify and reduce energy waste.
Designed to help users effectively apply eQUEST's capabilities to existing buildings, this improvement-driven modeling approach guides analysts in learning to think in new and innovative ways about energy modeling, while minimizing effort and maximizing accuracy. Analysts will learn a systematic approach to modeling existing buildings using eQUEST to achieve the desired goal – optimizing the return on energy efficiency measures proposed for a large commercial or public building. The focus will be on public assembly spaces, offices, public order, and public safety spaces. The reports and outputs generated during this training are suitable for investment-grade financial decisions. Additionally, the training will introduce new strategies for effectively developing trued-up eQUEST models that match actual utility bill usage before improvements are investigated.
