When we announced our plan to run an EnergyPlus training (for both architects and engineers), we also launched a survey to gauge the interest of the people in the region. We have also received feedbacks on our plan. We have answered the questions directly to the person, but we think it will be useful for everyone to know what other people are thinking. The summary is presented in the form of question-and-answer below.
About the Workshop?
Question: What is the aim of this workshop?
Below is the complete list of topics to be covered in the EnergyPlus Workshop. Each session will start with a short lecture, typically 10 minutes but can be longer. The workshop will focus of participants experience in going through the problems anddevelop a good work habit in doing simulation.
The University of Idaho, Integrated Design Lab-Boise (IDL) is running a three-day EnergyPlus workshop in Feb 14 -16, 2011. Energy Plus is a free software program available at www.EnergyPlus.gov and supported by the US DOE. The workshop is designed in the form of a la carte menu such that participants can choose topics based on their needs and interests. Day 1 and Day 2 is relevant to architects and mechanical engineers with little or no experience with Energy Plus.
The University of Idaho, Integrated Design Lab-Boise is developing a multiple-day training for Energy Plus! We would like to get input from you so we can put together the most effective and efficient workshop. Please take a moment to answer these nine short questions to help us gauge interest in an EnergyPlus workshop.
