The buildings industry faces many challenges and opportunities over the next few decades. Changes in building technology, particularly wireless controls and solid-state lighting will profoundly alter how buildings are designed, built, and operated over the next ten years.
Building energy simulation (SIM) offers a powerful tool to evaluate the energy performance of potential or existing buildings, allowing easy comparison of the energy and environmental performance of hundreds of design or retrofit options. Buildings touted today as ‘net-zero-energy’ or ‘sustainable' would not be possible without energy simulation, yet no single simulation tool can model all aspects of our buildings today.
You will discover:
- Trends and drivers affecting the building industry
- The benefits and possibilities of building energy simulation for both design and retrofit
