The simulation result of Energy Model is very useful for both non-professionals,such as building’s residents, or professionals, such as designers, engineers, to see building’s energy consumption during the design phase.
EnergyPlus is the core in energy simulation. EnergyPlus is funded by the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Building Technologies Office (BTO), and managed by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). Its results are reliable and the software has been used widely in building performance analysis.
Based on the simulation on the final design, the building will save energy by 35% comparing with the baseline of same kind building according to the standard of United States Environmental Protection Agency
