As part of my PhD study I have to do with building-simulation. It is not the main part of my work and so there is not that much time for trial-and-error learning. Does anyone offer online-workshops (skype for example)? I think I would need 3 x 2h or something like that :). Questions regarding integrating measured data into HVAC, implementing HVAC, etc.

There are number of videos available on NREL's YouTube channel. This can be a good starting point, please have a look. There is also EnergyPllus workshop coming up in Atlanta on September 28-29, 2015. You may also look into that (if your budget allows :) ).

There are firms that offer professional on-line courses with live trainers for OpenStudio and EnergyPlus. I'll refrain from advertising in this venue though, and suggest that a google search may turn up some alternatives if you're willing to pay for the service. If you're looking for free, then the tutorial and video resources at are your best bet.

Those videos are really old and not that helpful.

Big Ladder Software has multiple workshop topics for EnergyPlus and OpenStudio. These are normally organized for in-person formats but can be delivered via private webinars.

DISCLAIMER: I am the lead trainer at Big Ladder Software responsible for developing and delivering our workshops.

The EnergyPlus website has a Support & Training page with other resources. The OpenStudio Coalition website also has pages for beginner tutorials and advanced tutorials, as well as reference documents.
