2023 ASHRAE Building Performance Analysis Conference

Holistic Building Analysis: Linking Operational Energy, Embodied Carbon and Comfort

September 11-13, 2023 | Austin, Texas

 

ASHRAE will host the annual Building Performance Analysis Conference September 11-13, 2023 at the Hyatt Regency Austin, in Austin, Texas. This will be the tenth consecutive ASHRAE modeling conference and 12th overall. Designers, Architects, Consulting Engineers, Building Owners, Principals of Firms, Researchers, Utility Providers, Policy Experts, Contractors and Facility Managers will address the practices of energy modeling and building performance simulation using existing simulation tools, software development and future simulation research and applications.

The technical program will consist of keynote speakers, invited speakers, a call for presentations and the ninth ASHRAE LowDown Showdown.

The theme of the conference is: Holistic Building Analysis: Linking Operational Energy, Embodied Carbon and Comfort.

The technical program will address topics such as:

  • Approaches to Modeling Future Weather, Climate and Extreme Events
  • Modeling Advances - Tools and Workflows
  • Modeling for Carbon and Embodied Energy
  • Occupant Health, Wellbeing and Comfort
  • Modeling Existing Buildings
  • Thermal and hygrothermal (envelope) modeling
  • Lighting and Daylighting
  • Resilience
  • Intelligent Building Operations - Grid Interactions and Distributed Energy Resources
  • CFD Applications for Architectural Decision Making
  • Urban and Community Scale Modeling
  • Intelligent Building Operations - Efficiencies and Load Management
  • Energy Equality, Access and Justice

  • Call for Presentations

    A call for presentations is now open for the 2023 Building Performance Analysis Conference.

     “This year the conference theme is intended to highlight the need for a holistic approach to adequately address multiple challenges in building analysis from carbon to comfort,” says John Bynum, conference chair. “A variety of topics relevant to a holistic approach to building analysis at all lifecycle stages have been identified as well as other specific topics of interest such as resilience, CFD, urban scale modelling and energy equity. The committee is looking forward to receiving submissions across the variety of topics listed.”

     Building performance professionals and practitioners are invited to submit proposals for individual presentations between 10-25 minutes in length or 60-90 minute panel or seminar sessions. Proposals can cover a broad range of topics addressing the needs of the building performance analysis community. Creative and interactive presentation formats are strongly encouraged.

    • Individual presentations: On projects, research, or career/business development topics. (10-25 min)
    • Panel: 3-4 industry experts, including one moderator, on a current topic of interest or team case study. (60-90 min)
    • Seminar: 1-4 speakers and session Chair, on one of the conference topics. (60-90 min)

     Topics include:

    • Approaches to Modeling Future Weather, Climate and Extreme Events
    • Modeling Advances - Tools and Workflows
    • Modeling for Carbon and Embodied Energy
    • Occupant Health, Wellbeing and Comfort
    • Modeling Existing Buildings
