Simergy supports ASHRAE 209 BEM workflows!
Part 1: Building Energy Modeling in Conceptual Design
Building Energy Modeling (BEM) and simulation are seldom performed until late in building design, when design changes are very expensive. In this white paper series, we present the BEM workflows for each phase of building design - defined in the new ASHRAE 209 standard. We document, using a mixed-use commercial building case study - how each of these BEM workflows can be completed in reasonable and cost efficient timeframes.
This first whitepaper presents the BEM workflows for Concept Design. Nine Design alternatives were generated and simulated in a single day -- informing design decisions about building orientation, materials, daylighting, glazing, and HVAC system alternatives.
This analysis is quite valuable during Concept Design as this is the phase when design changes to improve energy efficiency are least expensive.
