The Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering (CAEE) department will host a Building Energy Modeling Seminar on Friday, September 28 at 2 p.m. in the John T. Rettaliata Engineering Center, Room 104. Amir Roth, technology manager for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Building Technology Office (BTO), will present a seminar titled “Bridging the Building Energy Modeling-Control Engineering Divide.”
Roth has served as technology manager for the Building Energy Modeling (BEM) sub-program since 2010. Prior to that, he taught computer and information sciences at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. He has a B.S. in physics from Yale University and a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Wisconsin—Madison. He is a member of ASHRAE and IBPSA.
Roth will be in Chicago for the 2018 Building Performance Analysis Conference and SimBuild, co-organized by ASHRAE and IBPSA-USA. He will provide an overview of DOE-supported work to bridge building energy models and building controls. No RSVP is necessary, all are welcome to attend.
