Ecotect Analysis offers a wide range of simulation and building energy analysis functionality that can improve performance of existing buildings and new building designs. Online energy, water, and carbon-emission analysis capabilities integrate with tools that enable you to visualize and simulate a building’s performance within the context of its environment.
• Whole-building energy analysis:
calculate total energy use and carbon emissions of your building model on an annual, monthly, daily, and hourly basis, using a global database of weather information.
• Thermal performance:
calculate heating and cooling loads for models and analyze effects of occupancy, internal gains, infiltration, and equipment.
• Water usage and cost evaluation:
estimate water use inside and outside the building.
• Solar radiation: visualize incident solar radiation on windows and surfaces, over any period.
calculate daylight factors and illuminance levels at any point in the model.
• Shadows and reflections:
display the sun’s position and path relative to the model at any date, time, and location.
