Building Energy Simulation Forum
The Building Energy Simulation Forum (the Forum) is a resource for professionals who work in or study the field of energy simulation. The monthly meetings are an opportunity for energy modeling professionals to meet and exchange ideas about technical approaches to energy simulation, emerging technologies and market trends and activities. The Forum invites seasoned and emerging professionals to connect with industry leaders and subject-matter experts.
The Forum is designed to fill the need for this collaboration previously served through Building Simulation Users Group (BSUG). It, like BSUG, is a member driven group, coordinated and sponsored by Energy Trust of Oregon.
