  • Interoperability: Import building layouts directly from multiple file formats to easily reuse existing data without the need for third-party applications to interpret data

AECOsim Energy Simulator Capabilities


Analyze building energy
  • Design, simulate, and analyze building mechanical systems, environmental conditions, and energy performances. Create 2D/3D energy models and documentation and generate reports of peak loads, annual energy calculations, energy consumptions, carbon emissions, and fuel costs.
Comply with ASHRAE standard
  • Automated ASHRAE 90.1 comparisons let you know how your mechanical and energy design performs against industry standards. Generate reports that are ASHRAE 90.1 compliant and document the energy efficiency of design, materials, and equipment used.
Operate with industry-standard EnergyPlus
  • Incorporate the EnergyPlus simulation engine, the emerging standard for the industry developed by the U.S. Department of Energy. Determine building energy loads and explore building HVAC systems and design options by simulating and analyzing building energy performance.
Utilize CAD and BIM data for simulations
  • Eliminate the need to reinterpret data between different applications. Work seamlessly between industry CAD, BIM, and AEC applications such as MicroStation, AutoCAD, Revit, and others with support of multiple software platforms.
