Energy Modeling

Energy Modeling is the process of modeling the energy usage and interaction between a building’s architectural, mechanical and electrical systems.  Complex Energy Modeling software can predict estimated hourly energy usage using a local weather profile and defined usage schedules.

Energy Modeling is necessary to document predicted energy savings of a design building over a defined reference building in the following scenarios:

  • Compliance with LEED Energy and Atmosphere Prerequisite 2 and Calculation of Points Earned under LEED Energy and Atmosphere Credit 1
  • Calculation of Utility Rebates
  • Calculation of EPAct 179d Tax Deduction
  • Preparation of an ASHRAE Level Three (Investment Grade) Energy Audit
  • Compliance with IPMVP Option D “Calibrated Simulation”  when Conducting a Measurement and Verification Study
