    Autodesk, Inc., continues to expand its product offerings beyond the traditional CAD and modeling applications, and develop tools that help us gain a better understanding of a building’s impact on its environment through building energy modeling. As understanding a building’s efficiency becomes more critical in the design process, your workflow must adjust to account for the change in tasks. In this session, we’ll examine how to prepare and capitalize on your Revit software model to get the best results. We’ll start by reviewing what an energy model needs from Revit software to maximize the results. Next, you’ll discover how to create an energy model in Revit and review the simulation results. After learning what the predicted energy costs are going to be, we’ll take a peek into Insight 360 software to perform a heating and cooling load analysis, and we’ll wrap up by reviewing the lighting and solar potential analysis tools. It’s all about taking the power of Building Information Modeling (BIM) to the next level, and using it to produce a sustainable design. This session features Revit and Green Building Studio.
