EnergyPlus, DOE’s New Generation Building Energy Simulation Program

DATE: Wednesday March 28, 2018.


With the interest in green building certification and requirements that new buildings achieve 30%, 50% or even zero-energy performance levels, simulating the energy performance of buildings has become increasingly important. EnergyPlus includes many building energy simulation features that have not been available together in a mainstream building energy simulation program—including variable time steps, configurable modular systems integrated with a heat balance-based zone simulation, on-site power, hybrid natural/mechanical ventilation, UFAD, and VRF. This presentation introduces the types of simulation tools available today and provides an overview of EnergyPlus simulation methodologies, capabilities and utilities and interfaces.
