APS Solutions for Business
Energy Modeling 102 Training


Energy modeling is an increasingly important part of an integrated design process. Join the APS Solutions for Business Team and the Arizona Chapter of the Association of Energy Engineers for a two-day workshop and learn how computer-based energy modeling tools can help inform design decisions and prioritize strategies that will have the greatest impact on the energy costs of new and existing buildings.

The class will include hands-on instruction utilizing the Department of Energy’s EnergyPlus and Open Studio software.

*Please note all attendees will need to download EnergyPlus 9.1 and OpenStudio 2.8.1 on their laptops in preparation for this class, and bring their laptops to the hands-on training.

Energy Modeling 102: Learn how energy modeling software accounts for internal loads and HVAC equipment consumption, and the inputs necessary to perform the calculations.

Additional takeaways from this workshop include understanding:

  • The key differences between new construction and existing building analysis
  • ASHRAE 90.1 modeling protocols and how to use them
  • The pros and cons of the various energy modeling tools available in the market

There are a limited number of tickets, so reserve your seat today!


$150 per day for general public, $75 per day for APS Customers and Trade Allies

Includes breakfast, lunch, snacks and parking

Tickets for Energy Modeling 101 are also available: Gain a basic understanding of how and when energy modeling should be used, how to set up a model, and what it takes to achieve an accurate model.

Everyone is welcome!

This two-day workshop is part of the APS Energy Insights training series – a collection of in-person classes and free webinars. We are committed to providing education and resources that help Arizona businesses reduce their energy costs and achieve their sustainability goals.
