Training Calendar

This is the first episode of our seven part training series about the 2018 Washington State Energy Code (WSEC) commercial provisions. We highlight new requirements and describe key changes to the provisions that govern the most substantive energy efficiency measures for each discipline.

Topics in this commercial 2018 WSEC episode include:

  • Measures that address thermal bridging in opaque envelope assemblies.
  • New criteria for fenestration assembly performance.
  • Building enclosure air leakage testing - passing the test will be required.
  • Envelope compliance - New tools to navigate prescriptive vs. component performance.

 

This is the second episode of our seven part training series about the 2018 Washington State Energy Code (WSEC) commercial provisions. We highlight new requirements and describe key changes to the provisions that govern the most substantive energy efficiency measures for each discipline.

Topics in this episode include:

  • Re-organization of the mechanical systems section.
  • Dedicated outside air systems (DOAS) provision expanded to include additional building occupancies.
  • Summary of changes to DOAS related provisions for new construction and mechanical system alterations.
  • Brief introduction to the new total system performance ratio (TSPR) requirement.

This is the fourth episode of our seven part training series about the 2018 Washington State Energy Code (WSEC) commercial provisions. We highlight new requirements and describe key changes to the provisions that govern the most substantive energy efficiency measures for each discipline.

Topics in this episode include:

  • WSEC commercial technical support and compliance documentation webtool.
  • New requirement for data centers.
  • Updates to the mechanical equipment efficiency tables.
  • New ventilation requirement for Group 2 occupancies.
  • Economizer exceptions.
  • Miscellaneous controls updates.
  • New duct insulation tables.

This training provides an introduction to the HVAC Total System Performance Ratio (TSPR) code compliance path. The presenters discuss what TSPR is, when it is required by code, and how it is calculated. They also provide a click-through demonstration that highlights key features of a web-based simulation tool that can be used to test a proposed building’s compliance with TSPR.

The presenters are Heather Burpee who is the Director of Education and Outreach at the University of Washington’s Integrated Design Lab and Supriya Goel, Senior Research Engineer at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. Duane Lewellen with Lewellen Associates moderates the Q&A and assists behind the scenes.
