What is IBPSA? And why did we start a Chicago chapter?

IBPSA is the International Building Performance Simulation Association. There is a United States regional affiliate (called IBPSA-USA), and IBPSA-Chicago is an officially-recognized affiliate of that organization.

 

OK, but what does IBPSA do? From the IBPSA-USA website: “The mission of IBPSA-USA is to advance and promote the science of building simulation in order to improve the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of new and existing buildings in the United States.”

 

Locally, we recognize that there is a growing community of building performance modelers. This includes consulting engineers, architects, energy service contractors, researchers, and academics who all have interest in some aspect of building simulation. Our goal is to provide networking and educational opportunities for interested professionals in and around Chicago.
