Energy Modelling and the BC Energy Step Code
This session will focus on the role of energy modelling in design and code compliance, particularly under the new BC Energy Step Code. Along with a basic overview of simulation options and targets, the Energy Modelling Guidelines that govern BC Energy Step Code simulations and requirements will be reviewed. A sample project will be used to demonstrate real world experiences, before concluding with a summary of key take-aways, tips and resources.
