IES Launch New Cloud Service ERGON at Greenbuild 2014
Sign up for our free training webinars
22nd October 2014
IES will launch its new Cloud service, ERGON at this year’s Greenbuild. ERGON will allow users to import, manage and interrogate real building schedules and use them in VE simulations. Visitors at Greenbuild 2014 in New Orleans, will be able to see first-hand how the tool works via demonstrations at the IES booth #1509.
Ergon allows you to utilise measured data from the actual building you’re investigating to create profiles that enhance model calibration or use normalised benchmark data from other buildings of its type. Such profiles can be used to improve operational models or help close the performance gap by bringing design models closer to reality.
As ERGON is based on the cloud it enables you to manipulate vast amounts of data and create profiles that go down as low as 1 minute time steps. Therefore you can not only deal with 8760 profiles, but also 525600 profiles!
Key Features include:
- Use real metered data created in ERGON to simulate down to 1 minute time-steps in the VE
- Undertake New Monitoring Based Commissioning LEED V4 Credits
- Make use of the mandatory Metering required by LEED V4
- Deliver Next Generation M&V using enhanced energy model calibration and monitoring based commissioning
- Create libraries of benchmark data to help Close the Performance Gap
Within ERGON users can import .csv files, graphically interrogate the completeness of data, undertake some initial analysis using in-build analytics, and export as a Free Form Profile Data file (.ffd) into ApPro for use in VE Apache simulations. Users can also generate from scratch bespoke profiles at deep granularity (consisting of up to 10 daily profiles which can be assigned hourly across a year).
IES are hosting two Getting Started training webinars that will take you on a tour of ERGON, showing you how to get started, what functionality is offered and how it integrates with the VE to offer you powerful enhanced calibration on design and operational models.
