Those involved in predicting buildings’ energy use are invited to ASHRAE’s upcoming Energy Modeling Conference.

The Oct. 1-3 meeting in Atlanta will offer 40 presentations, speeches and discussions with those who make energy-modeling software.

Issues planned for talks include refrigerant flow, ground-source heat pumps and dedicated outdoor-air systems.

“The ASHRAE Energy Modeling Conference: ‘Tools for Designing High Performance Buildings,’ addresses the most pressing issues facing modelers and those responsible for modeling in their companies,” said conference chairman Dennis Knight. “Attendees at this, the second ASHRAE Energy Modeling Conference, will benefit by networking with other modelers and software developers and by the numerous hands-on modeling presentations, including case studies, updates on ASHRAE standards and codes, and current tools available in the marketplace, their applications and work-arounds.”
