ENERGY STAR New Building Design Training



Achieve Energy Performance Goals for New Building Design

Attend the next "Achieve Energy Performance Goals for New Building Design" Internet presentation on Thursday, April 17  2:00-2:45 PM, EDT. This presentation describes how to use ENERGY STAR's software tool Target Finder, and how it complements energy simulation modeling and the LEED rating system. Target Finder takes rudimentary building and occupant data and yields the annual energy use value required if the building is to perform in the top 25 percent of U.S. building stock. The talk will also present strategies that will enhance performance and illustrates how building owners and designers can readily evaluate and achieve energy-based design targets. Decision-makers will learn how to set realistic goals for energy use and compare simulated results to their target. It will show designers how to compare energy simulation results to top performing buildings using Target Finder. The Target Finder and integrated design assistance has been developed for office buildings and other medium to large scale buildings such as schools, hospitals and hotels.

ENERGY STAR also offers many other presentations on such topics as: ENERGY STAR -- An Overview, Benchmarking Tool/Portfolio Manager, Money for Your Energy Upgrades, The Five-Stage Approach to Building Upgrades, Cost Savings through ENERGY STAR Purchasing, and Monitor Power Management.
