Interested in reducing your modeling effort? TREAT Single Family training is perfect for new and current TREAT users. We’ll teach you the best practices needed to streamline your modeling time. Reducing data input effort, calibrating your models, and ensuring that your projects are accurate and show savings!
This eight-hour training will help you get the most from TREAT, our award-winning energy modeling software. The course focuses predominately on using TREAT for single family residential projects. We will cover a bit of Multifamily modeling towards the end of day 2!
- Learn techniques to streamline the modeling process and complete more models in less time.
- Learn the TREAT essentials you’ll need to become more productive.
- Utilizing smart defaults and preferences to reduce your modeling effort!
- Create a sample building energy model during the class.
- Learn more about some of the latest features available in TREAT 3.5!
Creating a model of energy usage can be complex! This training covers the TREAT features, including the Project Wizard, that will help you create TREAT models quickly and efficiently.
Accreditation: 6 BPI CEUs
Dates: August 22-25
PSD’s 16-hour comprehensive TREAT training, conveniently delivered through four four-hour live, online webinars, will expose attendees to time efficient modeling procedures and methods. Attendees will learn how to leverage the TREAT modeling software to model and evaluate typical improvement workscopes used by weatherization programs, construct energy models of multifamily buildings from ‘scratch’, and apply templates to streamline the evaluation of standardized improvements.
The course is comprehensive and will cover apartment sampling, energy model calibration, modeling strategies, data entry problem solving, billing analysis, quantifying interactions between systems, predicted energy savings, and calculating SIRs. Students will be given homework assignment each day so that they can practice building TREAT models.
- Learn how to use the “Multifamily Existing Building Improvement-Driven Modeling Process” for improving energy efficiency in multifamily buildings using TREAT
- Integrate TREAT into the auditing process to improve overall project efficiency and productivity.
- Build a TREAT model with an appropriate level of detail to generate savings and workscope reports
- Demonstrate proper use of TREAT’s billing analysis tools to import a building’s actual energy bills and analyze baseline energy signatures and historical energy performance patterns
- Incorporate ‘non-energy’ benefits (i.e. health and safety measures) into the TREAT model
- Follow recommended procedure for ‘true-up’ of TREAT model
- Create and analyze the investment potential of individual ECMs and interacting sets of improvements
- Produce appropriate TREAT improvements reporting for weatherization projects
- Use TREAT to determine actual energy savings vs. predicted energy savings
