The Building Simulation Users Group (BSUG) was created in 2009 to help to start a community centered around architecture and engineering-focused building simulation. Three years, later, BSUG secured funding for another three years from the Idaho Power Company, whom also provided funding for the 1st three years. Dubbed "BSUG 2.0" the second cycle of the group made some tweaks to its mission and aspired to provide more value to its members than just a static lecture series. Users groups are in unique positions to generate content that draws upon the diverse expertise of its members and guest lectures. This content has the potential to help support and add value to the established simulation community. The goals of BSUG 2.0 include:
Continue to procure a lecture series from internal speakers, local experts, and regional/national/international
Create a website to house newly archived sessions and serve as a gateway of knowledge concerning building simulation
Create a living document that outlines the simulation protocols used by the UI-IDL on projects
Conduct market assessments of the market penetration of building simulation in the local market
