n this Hands-On workshop participants will learn how to design high performance homes that operate with minimum energy consumption, operation costs, and generation of green house gases.
Participants will learn how to quickly design and fine-tune homes using the latest version of HEED (Home Energy Efficient Design). If attendees bring their laptop, MAC or PC, they will be able to install this software for a hand’s on learning experience. Users can input their own designs using HEED’s fill-in-the-squares multi-story floor planner and click and drag window placement. The program then generates graphic plots of Annual Energy Consumption (kBTU), Carbon Footprint (CO2), or Annual Cost for Fuel and Electricity, among many other analysis images.
Audience Level: Architects, builders, energy consultants, homeowners, educators, and students with all levels of experience.
