OpenBuildings Energy Simulator is a rigorous yet intuitive application for the design, simulation, and analysis of building mechanical systems, environmental conditions and energy performance.
It can be used for building design, building regulation compliance, calculating thermal loads for equipment sizing, analysing thermal comfort and simulating light levels for visual comfort.
Used in both design and retrofit work, the software contributes to better-performing, more sustainable buildings that consume less energy; provide greater occupant productivity, comfort, and safety; and control lifecycle operational energy costs for their owners.
