IBPSA has three categories of membership:
- Individual Members
- Supporting Members
- Corporate Members
Information concerning elections can be found here.
Individual membership of IBPSA is achieved through joining a regional affiliate. All individual members of any IBPSA regional affiliate are automatically members of the IBPSA central organization, IBPSA World.
In addition to being able to participate in regional activities, IBPSA individual members benefit from a reduction in the biennial conference fees, and members are entitled to subscribe to a print version of IBPSA’s research Journal, “The Journal of Building Performance Simulation” (JBPS). The special subscription rate to JBPS is USD 64/£34/EUR 42. Members should contact +44 (0)20 7017 5543 or email@example.com to subscribe. (Please note that subscriptions purchased at the personal rate are strictly for personal, non-commercial use only.)
Supporting Members and Student Supporting Members are grades of membership that offer the opportunity to concretely support IBPSA and to receive several benefits: a print subscription to the Journal of Building Performance Simulation, online access to the Journal, and the right to use the IBPSA Supporting Member logo.
For 2019, Supporting Membership dues are set at $120/year and Student Supporting Membership is $80/year. Dues may be paid via credit card or PayPal here (link to IBPSA’s membership management system).
For 2023, Supporting Membership dues are set at $120/year (including subscription to JBPS); or $70/year (without subscription to JBPS) and Student Supporting Membership is $80/year (including subscription to JBPS) or $30/year (without subscription to JBPS).

Corporate members are companies or organizations that have an interest in the research, development, or application of building performance simulation.

- The company (or organization) logo on the IBPSA website (www.IBPSA.org), with a link to the company’s own website.
- The company logo, contact information, and a half-page advertisement in the IBPSA newsletter, this being published twice a year and distributed to the 5,000 members worldwide. The newsletter is also freely available on the IBPSA central website.
There are two categories of Corporate membership, standard and gold. Fees for standard corporate membership are set at US$750 per annum.
