"bSI Building Energy Modelling (BEM) orientation session"
bSI invites industry professionals (designers, owners/operators, consultants, academia, regulators, software vendors and Green Building Certification Institutions) with expertise and vested interest in the domain of Building Energy Modelling (BEM) to attend an orientation session about the bSI BEM report and a call for participants to be on the Expert Panel to review the documentation. There will be two instances of the webinar to accommodate our colleagues across the globe, with registration details shown below for different time zones.
At the webinar, you will receive information about the project and how you may participate as an Expert Panel delegate to review the report and its findings before it is voted on by the buildingSMART International Standards Committee.
Over the last two and a half years, the issue of addressing building energy modeling (BEM) utilizing buildingSMART principals and standards has been studied and documented with a ‘Master IDM’. It is an overview of how BEM may be applied to projects over their entire lifecycle, from conception to operations, and the many issues and challenges related to methods, processes, and technologies for creating, exchanging, and utilizing data among a diverse array of project stakeholders, software, and requirements.
The goal is to have the report vetted by a wide variety of industry stakeholders with domain expertise and responsibility from across the world. Their charge is to review the report, provide constructive feedback on any necessary revisions or additions, and come to a consensus on the results and recommendations for next steps in developing specific guidelines and data exchanges.
In following the bSI Process, after the Expert Panel review, the bSI standards governance committees will review, endorse, comment and then vote on enshrining the report as part of the bSI Standards Library. Learn more about the bSI Process at the link below.
