Model First, Then Measure
What We Learned from VT/Housing Virginia Study
with Philip Agee, EarthCraft Virginia

Thursday, December 17th
In-person from 8 – 9:30 AM, Richmond, VA, FREE
Via webinar from 11 AM – 12 PM, $10/registrant

As the industry pushes toward high performance buildings, energy modeling has become a tool for practitioners to project performance outcomes. However, few people measure building performance once the building is operational, and that’s where the fun begins. Join us as we discuss a first of its kind study that examines modeled vs. measured building performance. We will dive into how building performance impacts operations and maintenance (O/M) and how modeling in the future might help the industry finally deliver the results it has been promising.
