The process of building detailed energy models with results that attain the levels of accuracy required by utility incentive and green certification programs is typically tedious and convoluted. In response, Autodesk has implemented new energy analysis features for Autodesk® Revit® MEP 2013 and Autodesk® Green Building Studio® software that alleviate some of the difficult and time-consuming aspects of energy modeling for both existing buildings and new construction projects. Using an energy model created to simulate the energy performance of the Autodesk San Rafael, California, headquarters, this class will walk you through the detailed energy modeling process and show you how to use these new features to save time and increase your productivity.
- Create schedules and model HVAC and plumbing systems in eQuest
- Interpret results and troubleshoot errors
- Use Revit 2013 to model a building's envelope and thermal zone layout and apply internal loads
- Generate a DOE2 model using Green Building Studio and import it into eQuest along with the appropriate weather data
