The instructor will be my former graduate student, Mr. Hayes Zirnhelt. He completed an extensive EPlus model on NRC’s CCHT Twin Houses and has become extremely experienced in modelling houses in Energy Plus. Following his masters degree, Hayes has worked as an energy modelling consultant, and taught the EnergyPlus workshop at Ryerson in 2014. Over the last 2.5 years he has been working for Rocky Mountain Institute, as an energy modeller and design consultant working on cutting edge deep energy retrofits, and new net zero energy demonstration projects.
