Sustainable Built Environment Conference of the Americas in TorontoSBE16_logo

SBE16Toronto provides a unique opportunity to learn from international experts, connect with decision makers and do business in the green building and infrastructure sector. There is a technical paper session on Energy Modelling and Metrics. For more information and registration:




The website dedicated to the Experimental Houses of Building Energetics (EHBE) of the Energy Technology Laboratory (ETL) offers free download of selected data.
EHBE’s are full scale, fully instrumented twin houses. They have electric baseboards controlled by a line-voltage electronic thermostat in each room, air ducts ready for a central heating/cooling system,
electric radiant floors in the kitchen and the full bathroom and heat recovery ventilator. Each house has nearly 500 measurement points sampled at 15 minute intervals including per room space heating energy,
air temperature, velocity and humidity, sphere temperature, structure embedded temperatures, soil temperature and humidity, comfort metrics and local weather data.
The building energy model of one EHBE and the information required to generate it are also available for download.
