CLIMAPLUS: An Early-Design Web Tool
We have launched an updated version of ClimaPlus, an early-design web-tool developed to facilitate the design of naturally ventilated and hybrid/mixed-mode buildings that are energy-efficient and low-carbon. The tool is being used for teaching in a residential course at MIT, as well as in a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Sustainable Building Design that we developed in collaboration with MIT Energy Initiative.
ClimaPlus allows you to do analysis for any location in the world where there is a climate data available. You can select a location from over 2,000 locations already available in the web-tool or load your own climate data in EPW file format. Outdoor and indoor climate analysis charts can be exported to vector images for editing. Please go to climaplus.net to explore more.
