Advanced Building Energy Modelling Planning & Selecting GHG Reduction ProjectsWorking with the Greener Home Initiative


Advanced Building Energy Modelling

The advanced building energy modelling course is focused on developing skills that energy modellers utilize in creating energy models for buildings with complex systems and using those models to conduct in-depth analyses of energy performance. This approach is now more frequently implemented for new construction projects that need to meet the increasingly more stringent energy efficiency requirements of building codes as well as deep energy retrofits in existing buildings.

This course is designed for participants that completed the Building Energy Modelling Professional course or have similar knowledge. It is assumed that participants understand how building systems operate and have developed energy models for buildings with conventional systems that resulted in working energy model files.

Planning and Selecting GHG Reduction Projects

This course provides participants with the tools and expertise needed to determine the best path to decarbonization aligned multiple organizational objectives including emission reduction targets, capital planning cycles, operator capacity and expertise, and climate adaptation. Participants learn best practices as developed through real world expertise to ensure their decarbonization projects are effective in both the short and long term.

Day 1 is focused on decarbonization planning and portfolio level prioritization. We review triggers for decarbonization upgrades, benchmarking tools, and energy studies. Participants create a plan for decarbonizing an example portfolio.

Day 2 is focused on prioritizing individual projects within buildings, interactive building effects, and the implementation and M&V considerations as well as how to develop a low carbon roadmap for an individual facility. The course content is presented using a number of case studies across the commercial, institutional, multi-unit residential, and light industrial sectors.

Working with the Greener Homes Initiative

This one-day training will provide a deeper understanding of the grants offered by the GHI. It will clarify how to determine the eligibility of the owner and his home. Also, the participants will learn how to navigate and find the tiny little details important to make the GHI work. Finally, a synthesis activity with varying scenarios will help the participants encapsulate their new knowledge.

This course is right for you if you are or will be a Natural Resources Canada Registered Energy Advisor interested in delivering the GHI. This knowledge is valuable to every future EA’s and actual EA’s wanting to have a smooth experience dealing with homeowners and Greener homes personnel.
