The Value of Energy Analysis, from Design Day One
In partnership with USGBC-Missouri Gateway Chapter

This interactive program will provide attendees with a charrette experience for evaluating and driving building energy performance—to analyze results in real time, as early as pre-design. During this session, volunteer participants act as design team members from all disciplines, working with real building characteristics and an actual building design. Using an analysis approach that assists with a cost benefit discussion, the participants will assemble “bundles” of selected energy efficiency measures to play out what-if scenarios, discussing the merits and challenges of each bundle. This program, with live tools and facilitation, will demonstrate an effective method for guiding energy decision-making during early design, towards achieving higher efficiency goals and increasingly stringent energy codes.

Learning Objectives:
•Recognize the value early energy analysis provides to the design process and client decision-making
•Identify a range of energy-efficiency options and their impacts on energy outcomes during various stages of design
•Interpret building performance and financial information provided by energy analysis results, including lifecycle costs
•Examine how decisions made very early in pre-design can increase energy savings opportunities

AHRI 920 & ASHRAE 90.1 Update – DX-DOAS Performance Standard

The speaker will review the newly adopted AHRI 920 standard for DX-DOAS.  This standard, for the performance of dedicated outside air systems, was adopted in 2016 and also has been added to ASHRAE 90.1 – 2013  through Addendum cd.  The speaker will review why the standard was created, how the resulting Integrated Seasonal Moisture Removal Efficiency is calculated for applicable equipment, and why the engineering community needs to adopt this standard for proper equipment selection.

Indoor Grow Room Design

The speaker will review the indoor grow room application and the importance of proper HVAC equipment selection in this emerging market application.  With the expanded state legalization of medicinal marijuana and in some cases,  the recreational legalization of this product, there is an expanded interest in maximizing product output while meeting product quality guidelines established by state inspectors.  There is also an expanded interest in indoor farming of produce to meet the buy local demand and reduce the threat of food born contamination.  The speaker will discuss the latent & sensible loads that are created with indoor farming applications and how these affect the proper equipment selection.
