Holding Training of Trainers course for Building Energy Stimulation Software

The Energy Efficiency and Environment in Building project (EEEB), in collaboration with the Road, Housing and Urban Development Research Center (BHRC) and the Construction Engineering Organization of Iran, have organized a Training of Trainers course (ToT) course for building energy simulation software.

Topics such as basic principles of simulation in thermal analysis software, introduction of Energy Plus software, introduction of simulation parameters, shading and simulation of electrical and mechanical equipment and facilities, etc. were discussed in this course.

The purpose of this course is to introduce energy simulation software in buildings to the community of energy teachers and it is hoped that this will take an important step for the efficient design of buildings in accordance with technical and professional principles related to the design of low energy (EC+) and very low energy (EC++) buildings.

Director of BHRC Energy Department, Dr. Kari says that this ToT is of special importance because there is a gap in the country that needs to be filled. He stressed that engineers who use these softwares must have the necessary knowledge and understanding to use them correctly and be able to perform simulations according to the new edition of Article 19 of the National Building Regulations.

This course includes two parts, offline and online. The first part was held in September 2020. After finishing the first phase, selected individuals, who passed the practical test, were divided into three groups and took online courses, all of which ended by September 2021. In total, the participants attended 60 hours of training and about 70 members of the community of the energy teachers in the country have successfully passed the course.
