IESVE Software Directly Integrates with AIA 2030 Commitment Reporting
IESVE Software now directly uploads energy model results to the AIA 2030 Commitment website via new functionality within the IESVE Navigators framework. The upload process is launched with one easy click. The integration from IESVE Software to the AIA 2030 DDx website is made possible with an API connection, which enables more extensive and easier reporting to IESVE Software users and to the 525+ committed firms.
Note, the ‘Architecture 2030 Navigator’ Navigator is free, but you will require an AIA 2030 firm key to upload a project to your firm’s portfolio. Please ensure your firm is an official participating signatory to the AIA 2030 Challenge.
This new IESVE software integration supports the AIA 2030 Challenge, such that all new buildings, developments, and major renovations shall be carbon-neutral by 2030 by way of sustainable design. Users can now track their progress against the AIA 2030 goals with this streamlined upload.
An AEC firm’s ability to meet their AIA 2030 commitments, by progressing towards carbon-neutrality within the built environment, depends largely on being able to measure their portfolios progress towards their carbon-neutral goals.
AEC building designers can also analyze energy & carbon metrics natively within IESVE software, as well as modeling of renewable energy production (PV, Wind, Geo, Solar-thermal) that is building-specific within IESVE software. An example of the of an automated IESVE energy model output is shown to the right:
The AIA 2030 Commitment emphasizes the following performance metrics:
- Carbon Emissions & Energy Use Intensity (EUI).
- Lighting Power Density (LPD).
For Engineers & Energy Modelers
The AIA 2030 upload functionality is the same, but the design-phase and compliance application may be different. In any case, the functionality has been integrated into other IESVE-Navigators, thus further integrating AIA 2030 reporting with building compliance modeling for ASHRAE 90.1-ECB; Florida Energy Code, Title 24 and LEED (ASHRAE 90.1-PRM). This will likely be a more practical submittal, seeing as the number of engineers & energy modelers (combined) outnumber the submittals from architecture teams by a factor of 3.5 – 7.5 over the last three years.
