Energy modeling is one of the most useful analyses , we can do while designing a green building. Our in house building energy analysts will deliver sate of the art modeling services while working closely with project teams. We practice integrated approach & provide simulations at early design stages to optimize passive design measures & comfort parameters. We will also provide modeling & simulation services for various green building code compliance & as a decision making tool in implementing efficient systems in the building.
Energy-modeling is the virtual or computerized simulation of a building or complex with a specific software, focusing on energy consumption, utility bills and life cycle costs of various energy related components of the building such as air conditioning, lights and hot water to determine the most efficient design. The most significant elements of the building in terms of energy are modeled to carry out simulation and evaluate for improvement in energy efficiency. The virtual model of the building is constructed from its component parts, including air conditioners, heaters, lights, and other energy loads, and is run through a simulation program with weather conditions for a full year to estimate the building’s monthly, and total, energy costs. It is also used to evaluate the payback of efficient energy solutions such as solar panels and photo voltaic, and high efficiency appliances.
Energy-modeling is used to:
- Predict the monthly& yearly energy consumption
- Predict the annual energy cost
- Annual CO2 emissions
- Compare and contrast different efficiency options
- Determine life cycle payback on various energy conservation options.
