Software package for load calculation and energy and economic comparative analysis. System Analyzer permits a quick evaluation of virtually any building, system, and equipment combination. Thus, it can be used either as a scoping tool to decide what systems may be appropriate for an initial design, or to get a general feeling of how one system/equipment combination may perform over another. If a certain combination seems especially promising, further analysis can be done by exporting inputs into TRACE 700. The possibilities are endless. And since the program is Windows-based, virtually anyone with minimal HVAC training and experience can use it.

A commercial EPC based energy report. Taking the data file behind any commercial EPC, we can generate a fully costed improvement report, detailing carbon, cost and energy savings potential and impact on the resulting energy rating. Designed for MEES compliance, it is also perfect for preliminary scoping of energy performance contracts, and for managing planned investment on a portfolio.The platform provides all stakeholders with a greater understanding of building energy modelling and where investment should be directed.

Capabilities:

Load Calculations, Building Energy Benchmarking
