May 24, 2018 BSUG: Energy Modeling for LEED v4 in OpenStudio
USGBC’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) helped push energy efficiency in commercial buildings far beyond minimum code requirements. The latest version, LEED v4, is continuing to advance energy efficiency with the adoption of ASHRAE 90.1-2010 Appendix G for baseline modeling. In order for whole building simulations to accurately inform design teams, the code must be correctly reflected in the energy model. This presentation will address several potential issues with using OpenStudio for LEED v4 energy modeling and provides solutions and best practices for practitioners. These issues include; several of the defaults in OpenStudio do not comply with ASHRAE, some requirements in ASHRAE are not explicitly identified leaving modelling these parameters up to interpretation, and there are program-specific issues in meeting the ASHRAE requirements.
