Main Presentation Highlights:

This talk emphasizes the importance of conceptual modeling in the building design process. Included in the discussion is how to set goals early in design, benchmark, and quality check the conceptual model. A live demonstration will be conducted that will show you how to use simple tools within a comprehensive analysis format to imbed energy and cost information into the early design process.


Scott Hackel, PE, LEED AP, Senior Energy Engineer

Scott began his career in the oil and gas industry after a BS in ME at the University of Wisconsin. After several years decided to make a switch from energy production to efficiency. While completing his Masters (again at UW) Scott began a job with the Energy Center of Wisconsin, where he currently works. Scott’s Master’s work investigated optimal design of hybrid ground source systems, and he has continued that by researching and consulting on advanced HVAC system optimization while at the Energy Center. Scott’s work utilizes an array of energy analysis techniques including whole building energy modeling.

Alisa Petersen, Energy Engineer

Alisa received her BS in mechanical engineering as well as a certificate in Engineering for Energy Sustainability at UW-Madison. She worked with renewable energy and clean engine emissions before working at the Energy Center of Wisconsin. While at the Energy Center Alisa has consulted on dozens of building projects. The majority of her focus is on building energy modeling, but she also does research on new energy efficiency measures.
