Integrated Energy Network Design & Analysis Tool
Benchmark energy and resource use for new and existing developments to predict and optimise operational performance.
The iVN is a network modelling tool designed to perform "as-is" and future scenario simulations of a community's distribution networks. Model, integrate and optimise their design and management across electricity, heating, cooling and waste heat.
Features and Benefits
Quickly Generate Building Demand Data
Often the critical missing data piece is "building energy demand". There are 3 ways to quickly and easily generate this data for the iVN.
- Use the Energy Simulation feature in the iVN Simulation Hub.
- Import data from IES's operational managment and analysis tool, iSCAN.
- Import data from IES's masterplanning and urban design tool, iCD.
Easily connect the energy flows and decision points on the network. Configure the layout once and view in multiple ways.
iVN in action
Watch our 4 minute video which shows you around the iVN tool so you can see the technology in action.
Get an understanding of the look and feel and capabilites of the tool. See how you can use this technology to quickly and easily create a virtual design model of any energy network.
Explore how leading innovators like you are harnessing the power of iVN with our interconnected ICL platform.
With the overarching aim of achieving a Net Zero Energy Campus, IES worked with DKIT to virtually model and analyse their distributed electricity network.
IES created an Intelligent Virtual Network (iVN) model of Eday to identify ways to minimise waste excess wind generation, improve energy efficiency and take steps to creating a Zero Energy Community.
What our Customers Say
“Acting as a demo site for the project, the iVN has already delivered very interesting and useful information which as the final results come through will greatly benefit the community by enabling domestic and community electrical storage to be planned. The whole project has generated great enthusiasm with the local community.”
