On Saturday, April 28th, 2018, our team celebrated Earth Day by volunteering with the Charles River Watershed Association in the 19th Annual Earth Day Charles River/Muddy Water Cleanup.
The Annual Earth Day Charles River Cleanup brings together over 3,000 volunteers each year to pick up litter, remove invasive species and assist with park maintenance.
This is the forth consecutive year The Green Engineer has volunteered in the CRWA's annual cleanup.
According to the CRWA, "the Annual Earth Day Charles River Cleanup builds on a national effort as part of American Rivers’ National River Cleanup®, which to date, has removed over 20.7 million pounds of trash from America’s waterways."
The Green Engineer's Principal and Founder, Chris Schaffner, will lead an Energy Modeling in eQuest course organized by the Massachusetts Chapter of the USGBC. The course is a four part series that will begin on June 21, 2018 and run through August 23, 2018.
Energy Modeling in eQuest
This a comprehensive commercial energy modeling course for you to master eQUEST, the free “Quick Energy Simulation Tool” developed by the U.S. Department of Energy and other industry leaders. eQUEST is the most commonly used software for energy modeling for code compliance, utility incentives, and LEED Certification for commercial buildings. This course is hands-on. You will learn how to build and run energy models. By the end of the course, you should be able to function as the go-to energy modeler on an integrated design team.
The course will consist of four separate modules. Each module will start with a two hour in class session, followed by modeling exercises that are done outside of class, to be completed by the next class session (aka homework). Each module will build upon previous work in class. By the end of the fourth module, students will have created, run and QCed an energy model on a building of their choosing. Along the way we’ll touch on the uses of energy modeling in an integrated design process, and some of the standards that apply to energy modeling such as ASHRAE 90.1 Appendix G.
This is a hands-on, project-based course that will give you the confidence to do energy modeling for paying clients. While there are no specific prerequisites, knowledge of the building industry and basic building science will be helpful.
Attendees will use their own computers (bring them to class) Mac Users: Unfortunately, eQUEST only runs natively on PCs. In order to run the software on a Mac, you’ll need to use a virtualization program.
