CAPACITY BUILDING AND TRAINING SERIES

 eQuest eQUEST has been adopted by the ESD as a tool for modeling building energy systems. 

ESD will conduct a series of Webinars to provide individuals working on aspects of the Project within the respective Participating Countries with the capacity to run and interpret the results from the software.

eQUEST is the most popular energy modeling program in existence.  It is used by energy modelers and engineers all over the world at every stage of building development, from the early designs to final stages.  Download the eQUEST 3 Overview

QUick Energy Simulation Tool
Attendees: Two participants from each country, i.e. National Coordinator, plus one technical person, who can become a trainer for others (Train-the-Trainer)
Presenter: Mr. Thomas Hamlin, Inter-Regional Adviser – Energy and Transport, UNDESA
Details: The course will attempt to model a “real Caribbean building” during the training session.These training sessions will also be used to obtain feedback on the applicability of some features in e-QUEST to Caribbean building circumstances. Where possible, attempts will be made to accommodate peculiarities within the tool.

eQUEST was designed to allow modelers and engineers to perform detailed analysis of today’s state-of-the-art building design technologies using today’s most sophisticated building energy use simulation techniques, but without requiring extensive experience in the “art” of building performance modeling.
