Energy-modeling is the virtual or computerized simulation of a building or complex that focuses on energy consumption, utility bills and life cycle costs of various energy related items such as air conditioning, lights and hot water. It is also used to evaluate the payback of green energy solutions like solar panels and photovoltaics, wind turbines and high efficiency appliances.
Buildings account for nearly 40 percent of total energy usage worldwide and up to 38 percent of global CO2 emissions. Green buildings use 30 percent less energy than conventional buildings and research indicates that every US$1 invested into energy efficiency avoids more than US$2 in energy supply costs.
Our Expertise engineer can provide energy modeling of your planned or existing commercial or residential building. We use computer software that models a simulation of the building envelope, HVAC equipment.
Using this information, we can:
Predict energy savings resulting from design alternatives that may include day-lighting, building orientation, window or shading improvement, more efficient lighting, and/or HVAC equipment.
Analyze energy upgrades to your building to help predict energy savings.
Provide the documentation needed to qualify for energy credits in certification programs.
Help you predict whether your building design will meet ENERGY STAR standards.
Our services include energy simulation modeling, plan reviews, and economic analyses of energy efficiency measures, dynamic simulation and analysis, daylight modeling and analysis and shading modeling and analysis
