    Building Energy Analysis Seminar 4, (eQUEST and DOE2)

    October 16-18, 2008
    This seminar is an introduction to the use of the eQUEST® and DOE2 programs for code compliance and LEED certification (Energy & Atmosphere and Indoor Environmental Quality sections related to energy use only).  eQUEST® is an easy-to-use graphical CAD and Forms interfaces to the DOE2.2 energy program.

    Day 1: Thursday, October 16, 8:30am - 4:30pm
    Morning: eQUEST Schematic Design Interface
    Afternoon: eQUEST Detailed Design Interface

    Day 2: Friday October 17, 8:30am - 4:30pm
    Morning: Introduction to the DOE2 program and editing the eQUEST® DOE2 input file.
    Afternoon: Case Studies using eQUEST® and DOE2.

    Day 3: Saturday October 18, 8:30am - 12:30pm (half-day program)
    Morning: Code Compliance & LEED Certification using eQUEST?

    eQUEST® is a sophisticated, easy to use, building energy use analysis tool. eQUEST® was designed to allow you to perform detailed comparative analysis of building designs and technologies by applying sophisticated building energy use simulation techniques but without requiring extensive experience in the "art" of building performance modeling.  This is accomplished by combining schematic and design development building creation wizards, an energy efficiency measure (EEM) wizard and a graphical results display module with a complete up-to-date DOE. You can read the eQUEST Overview to get a more complete summary of the features and capabilities of this program.

    DOE2 Energy Analysis Computer Program has been the national and international standard for building simulation for energy evaluation since it was first introduced by the US Department of Energy (USDOE) in 1980.
