Building Energy Modeler
The MFHR Performance Path requires energy modeling to simulate whole-building energy usage. Due to the complexity of these buildings, participating in the modeling process may require additional training or more advanced software.
The simulation program must meet the requirements of ASHRAE 90.1 - Appendix G, Section G2.2. Although not limited to this list, examples of programs that meet these requirements are DOE-2, eQUEST, TRACE, HAP and EnergyGauge.
