Business Environment Council is pleased to be a supporting organisation of Technical Seminar on Building Energy Simulation – Trends, Technologies and Applications organised by ASHRAE Hong Kong Chapter.

About the Seminar

Electricity generation accounts for around 60% of the total CO2 emissions from energy use in Hong Kong, and buildings, particularly air-conditioned buildings, account for more than half of the electricity consumed each year. Compliance with the Building Energy Codes can reduce energy consumption and operating costs. The reduction of energy leads to the saving of fossil fuels, and reduces carbon dioxide emissions which contribute to global climate change. Mentioned in Energy Use aspect in BEAM Plus Manual, an energy analysis report shall include a formal certifying statement informing the scope of compliance and confirming the compliance with the BEC either by Prescriptive or Performance Option. The statement shall be accompanied by a set of documents, including as-fitted/installation drawings, design calculations and standard forms as required in the BEC. On the use of performance approach to demonstrate compliance, the statement shall include a report describing the simulation software, the simulation results, and the modeling assumptions. Therefore, a simulation software tool is important to model the energy performance for all aspects of our buildings today. 

In this technical seminar, the speaker will review the building energy simulation on its development and trends. Also, he will introduce the types of building energy simulation tools available today and provide an overview of EnergyPlus simulation methodologies, capabilities and utilities and interfaces.
