Energy Modeling / Building Simulation
|Building Energy Modeling (BEM) is the process of a building
being built from its component parts on a computer and then a
Simulation is performed by taking that building through the
weather conditions of an entire year.
Building Design: Many modern residential and commercial building codes
require minimum energy performance. Energy modeling can be used to
demonstrate compliance, or predict energy consumption of proposed
• Life-cycle cost analysis: Comparing different building design
alternatives to determine which is the least cost, including capital costs and
(at a minimum) energy costs. Sometimes referred to as Total Cost of
• Load Design: Used to determine heating and air conditioning loads, air
flow requirements, equipment capacities, supply temperatures, hydronic
• Energy-Analysis / Energy-Modeling: Used to predict monthly energy
consumption/cost, annual CO2 emissions.
• Energy Retrofit Analysis: Energy modeling when used in conjunction
with an energy audit, can be used to predict savings between alternative
energy cost saving measures.
