Climate Data for Building Design: Considerations for an Uncertain Future.

Presenter: Nathan Kegel

As building energy simulation becomes more common for uses ranging from predictive (as in zero net energy design) to compliance (as in ASHRAE 90.1 and IECC compliance), the unknowns and assumptions used become increasingly critical to making informed design decisions and in enabling owners to getting maximum value from their buildings.

We also know that we are living in an era of a rapidly changing climate.  How sensitive are different building types and different climate regions to the impacts of these shifts in climate?  Are the assumptions that the design and simulation community have used in the past still valid for making decisions in the future?

By using representative climate data sets and representative building models, we can study the potential sensitivity that assumptions about climate play in the energy consumption of buildings.  The results show significant variation in total building energy use intensity (EUI) as well as in the energy end uses across all building types and all climate zones in the United States.

The results suggest careful consideration of climate data is essential in properly deploying building simulation as a design tool.

Technical Presentation is from 12:00 to 1:30
