Autodesk Univsersity Class: Got Green? Using Autodesk Products to Reduce Energy Consumption

I am very excited to announce that I have been chosen this year to speak at Autodesk University!

AB3691: Got Green? Using Autodesk Products to Reduce Energy Consumption

"In this class, we will explore how you can use Autodesk products to efficiently and effectively create more sustainable building designs. We will discuss using Project Vasari from Autodesk Labs to create different conceptual mass shapes and perform very early energy analysis to determine the most efficient profile. We will incorporate the masses into Autodesk® Revit® products to create simple energy models and utilize the central location to manipulate the information for further analysis. Next, we will use Autodesk Green Building Studio to determine and reduce energy costs and consumption based on rotation, materials, and system definitions. Finally, we will use Autodesk Ecotect® to visualize shadows, the effect of sun paths and solar radiation, perform daylighting analysis, and determine the need for shading devices."


This year, Autodesk University is returning to The Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event runs from November 29 until December 1, 2011, and general registration is now open. Don't forget to register by October 11, 2011, and save $500! 

Also, get Autodesk Certified at AU for Free!  If you have already acheieved 2011 Certified Professional status, you only need to pass the 2012 Associate exam to upgrade to 2012 Professional status.
