The Building Simulation Userís Group at Yahoo is the communications outreach of the collegial BSUG, a monthly forum that meets on the third Wednesday of each month from noon to 1:30 PM. There is both an in-person participation meeting and an online webcast option for BSUG.
The purpose of BSUG is threefold:
1. To make participants more effective as energy analysts and generally raise the quality of building analysis and design in the PNW.
2. To promote positive interaction between designers and energy modelers.
3. To provide a forum for ideas and questions about energy-related design and building simulation.
BSUG is sponsored and supported by the Energy Trust of Oregon, NW Natural, the Oregon Department of Energy, Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance, ASHRAE and Bonneville Power.
Although the group has an Oregon focus, the interests and topics of the BSUG participants range across all modeling subjects including those related to LEED, Oregon SEED and Energy Trust programs, Title 24, and applications of various modeling tools (eQUEST, DOE-2, EnergyPlus, Visual DOE, TRACE, EZ-SIM, CodeComp and others), as well as the entire spectrum of energy analysis and engineering issues.
If you want to participate in the BSUG meetings, contact Earl L. Johnson, representing the Oregon Energy Trust, at EarlLJohnson@Comcast.net. Register for the forums at www.energytrust.org/BSUG.
