Energy-10

Conceptual design tool focused on making whole-building tradeoffs during early design phases for buildings that are less than 10,000 ft2 floor area, or buildings which can be treated as one or two-zone increments. Performs whole-building...
Tool

Energy Profile Tool

A customizable, commercially available energy analysis tool. Users enter information about their facilities to receive detailed profiles of the energy use, as well as benchmark comparison results. The tool helps identify opportunities to...
Tool

Energy Expert

Self-training software that creates a “smart model” of a building using interval data and hourly weather data and compares daily energy consumption against this norm. The Energy Expert will tell you whether a facility over-consumed, under-...
Tool

EnerCAD

Heat balance optimisation of buildings and active solar potential with real-time feedback. Although several heat balance calculation software do exist, EnerCAD has a very specific approach: it is designed by a multidisciplinary team of...
Tool

ENER-WIN

Energy design tool for large commercial buildings. Performs whole-building energy analysis for 8760 hours/year for up to 98 zones and 20 different wall and window types. Calculates transient heat flows, HVAC loads, daylighting, energy...
Tool
