Simergy supports ASHRAE 209 workflows!

Part 1: Building Energy Modeling in Conceptual Design

Until recently, Building Energy Modeling (BEM) and simulation was only considered late in the design process. In this series of white papers, we present 6 of the 8 ASHRAE 209 BEM workflows, implemented using Simergy.

This paper presents the first two workflows for Concept Design. We demonstrate how to answer early design questions about building orientation, materials, and glazing.  We also take a first look at how different types of HVAC systems perform in the case study climate.  All of this is aimed at creating a more energy efficient design.
