Conceptual energy modeling can help to inform many critical energy focused decisions very early in the design process. Early energyefficiency decisions can help to avoid expensive #re-design# fees, reduce the cost to implement measures later in design, and provide the building owner with a more valuable asset. It is also critical when establishing performance-based energy targets.

Duringthis webinar, we#ll discuss how to perform conceptual energy modeling with relatively basic information, when to use it in the designprocess, and common applications and scenarios. A live demonstration will be conducted that will show you how to use simple toolswithin a comprehensive analysis format to imbed energy, first cost, and life cycle cost information into the early design process.

We#ll highlight the most effective ways to leverage conceptual modeling and empower the design team and owner to make decisions as early as the conceptual design phase. By using relatively basic information about the building and potential design options, very high level go or no-go decisions can be made in real time without the common #I#ll get back to you in two weeks# lag. We#ll also explore how the interactive effects of specific efficiency measures can work to reduce the whole building first cost and life cycle cost.
