Program Overview

The Building Energy Modelling Essentials course provides a perfect starting point for participants who wish to familiarize with modelling concepts and demonstrate compliance with the National Energy Code of Canada for Buildings (NECB).

This one-day course provides an overview of the requirements of the NEBC and a description of the three compliance paths (prescriptive, trade-off, and performance). For a more extensive NECB course, see Working With the National Energy Code for Buildings (NECB) course. During the training, participants are also taken through a case study model of a commercial building to understand what details are included in models and the factors that make an energy model successful and compliant by covering basic modellings principles.Finally, this course will cover the strengths and weaknesses of various energy modellings softwares.

Ready to take the next step in energy modelling and compliance for buildings? Our Building Energy Modelling Professional course will give you the tools you need to execute the modelling process.
