The ability to output results of whole buildin energy models on a hour-by-hour basis exists in most modeling tools, but remains an under-utilized capability on most projects. This presentation will highlight several creative uses of hourly modeling output including illustrating integrated energy design, energy model QA/QC, climate analysis, shading and facade optimization, loads analysis, solar system design support, and passive system design support. real-time examples will be demonstrated using Equest.


Mike Hatten:

Mike Hatten has been actively involved in analysis, design, and construction of energy efficient buildings since 1981. His credentials include professional engineer, analyst, educator, author, researcher, businessman, and student. His approach is multi-disciplinary and grounded in the real-world performance of buildings, but recognizes the power of energy modeling in creating ultra-efficient commercial and institutional buildings. As such, Mike has been creatively using and teaching whole building energy modeling techniques since 1984.
