At this conference, the U.S. Department of Energy will launch its development roadmap for EnergyPlus, OpenStudio, EPGUI, and other
tools and introduce new, formal channels for public input. Attendees will be able to provide feedback on the roadmap and on DOE’s
general activities in the simulation tools area.
The Town Hall is presented by Amir Roth, program manager for building performance simulation tools at DOE, and Richard See,
managing director at DigitalAlchemyPro, who will demo EPGUI – a new, comprehensive, and free GUI for EnergyPlus scheduled for
beta release in summer 2011.
1:00- 4:00 BEMP Certification - ASHRAE Headquarters

Must Be Pre-Registered

ASHRAE will offer a special administration of the Building Energy Modeling Professional (BEMP) certification examination the afternoon
of April 6. The BEMP certifies an individuals’ ability to evaluate, choose, use, calibrate, and interpret the results of energy modeling
software when applied to building and systems energy performance and economics and to certify individuals’ competence to model
new and existing buildings and systems with their full range of physics.

ASHRAE does not warrant that attending the ASHRAE Energy Modeling: Tools for Designing High Performance Buildings Conference
will guarantee successful completion of the examination and conference attendance is not required for participation in the BEMP
program. The exam will begin at 1:30 p.m. (candidates must report to the testing room at 1:00 p.m.). If you need transportation to
ASHRAE HQ, sign up at ASHRAE registration. The shuttle will depart at 12:30pm. If you will be leaving after the exam to travel home,
you may take your luggage with you to ASHRAE Headquarters and travel to the airport from there.

A tour of the ASHRAE Headquarters will be offered from 3:00-4:00 on Wednesday. Please sign up at the conference registration desk
so transportation can be arranged.
