What are the best tools available to leverage emerging best practices from advanced energy modeling? Ultimately, accuracy is dependent upon the quality of inputs and the communication of results on how well they are presented; resources to ensure appropriate inputs and methods of presenting findings will be included in the discussion. Tools that allow stakeholders to review different scenarios in real time and enhance the efficacy of parametric modeling will be reviewed. Best practices for the accurate accounting of thermal bridging on façade performance will be a primary focus.
