SITizens Learning Credits


Building Energy Modelling (BEM) is crucially needed for whole-building performance assessments and energy-efficiency measures to meet a building’s energy performance target. BEM is also mandatory for projects applying for the Green Mark certification Gold Plus and Platinum, Singapore’s very own green building rating system.

This 2-day course aims to provide you with fundamental concepts about BEM that will support your learning and work practice in this industry. This course will also provide hands-on experience on BEM with OpenStudio, an open-source platform software tool to support whole-building energy modelling using EnergyPlus.

To aid companies in transforming their capabilities through their human capital, and support Singapore’s drive towards becoming a Smart Nation, this course is mapped to the Singapore Economic Development Board’s Singapore Smart Industry Readiness Index – Dimension 2 - Horizontal Integration; Dimension 9 - Facility Connectivity; Dimension 12 - Facility Intelligence
