This presentation on October 4th 2018, 1-2pm Central will introduce US DOE’s Building Energy Asset Score tool. Building Energy Asset Score is a web based tool that rates the as-design energy efficiency of a building through a whole building energy simulation using OpenStudio/EnergyPlus. This asset rating is useful for evaluating the as-designed efficiency of a building which provides significant insights when compared against an operational rating like a Portfolio Manager score. Supriya will also introduce some of the other capabilities of Asset Score tool, including Asset Score Preview and Audit Template Tool and discuss how some cities and states are using these capabilities.
As a research engineer at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, Supriya’s current work is focused on development of a rating system for existing buildings, development of simulation tools for rating of buildings, and research in building energy codes and standards. She is leading the development of Building Energy Asset Score tool and the Performance Rating Method Reference Manual for ASHRAE Standard 90.1. She is a voting member of ASHRAE Standards Projects Committee 211, which is developing requirements for commercial building energy audits, and is also on the Board of Directors for the International Building Performance Simulation Association-USA (IBPSA-USA)
