Energy Modeling Further Demystified

Building on the previous post on energy modeling, there is another introduction to the process posted over at BuildingGreen called "Understanding the Energy Modeling Process: Simulation Literacy 101". Great read for beginners such as myself.

I found out about the above article thanks to Suzanne O'Leary of ThinkDwell--a company that designs homes making the occupants absurdly and a bit creepily happy according to the picture on their homepage. Suzanne has started what is sure to become a very helpful forum on energy modeling issues called The site is brand new and will need to develop an audience (that's you!) before it really provides a good base of info, but RealLifeLEED supports any and all online communities that could make sustainable design simpler for everyone. Check it out now!

We received final design review credits and are now in construction phase. Our engineer reran the energy model recently based on a different roofing insulation value, but this didn't change our credit points - just a slightly different % value.
Are we required to resubmit the energy credits again?
