Autodesk BPA Credits: Energy Literacy &Building Loads
|Format||On Demand: Online|
|Category||Energy and atmosphere|
This course will cover how buildings use energy. You will learn about how energy flows through buildings, what factors contribute to building loads, and how all these factors contribute to a building#s total energy use. You will also learn how to produce heating and cooling load charts and conduct a conceptual energy analysis using Autodesk Vasari. With this information, you will be able to evaluate a building#s energy performance and offer improvements for how to achieve a more energy efficient building.
#Understand heat transfer basics and how energy flows within buildings.
#Use Autodesk Vasari to produce and understand energy loadcharts.
#Use Autodesk Vasari to complete a conceptual energy analysis and compare different design options.
#Make informed decisions about how to reduce energy use through building massing, orientation, and constructions.
