Building energy modeling predicts building energy consumption, CO2 emissions, peak demands, energy cost and renewable energy production.
Whole building energy simulation analysis capabilities of the IESVE software tools covers a wide range of assessment types from energy efficiency, comfort, ventilation, HVAC performance and optimization. Design for the future with low impact energy systems and strategies.
Building Energy Modeling (BEM) with the IES Virtual Environment software is the perfect industry design tool for electrification and decarbonization of the built environment. Various design strategies are available with decarbonization as an end goal.
Solar shading, site orientation, natural ventilation, passive solar heating, etc.
High-performance constructions, reduced infiltration, efficient lighting, daylight harvesting, ceiling fans, etc.
Energy-recovery ventilators, demand-controlled ventilation, CHP, air+water economizers, VSD fans+pumps, etc.
Heat pumps (air/water/geo), heat-recovery chillers, HPWH, low-temp radiant heating, etc.
Solar PV, wind turbines, solar hot-water pre-heating, geothermal heat exchange, etc.
Electric battery storage with TOU control or Demand Response, Thermal Energy Storage.
Widely regarded as the best whole-building energy simulation engine in the world, the powerful APACHE engine used in the IES Virtual Environment software has unrivalled flexibility and features.
Increase hourly annual simulation speed, by using IES’s ApacheSim simulation engine and the Parallel Simulation Manager feature by using more of the available cores on your computer.
IESVE Software directly uploads energy model results to the AIA 2030 Commitment website via new functionality within the IESVE Navigators framework. The AIA 2030 Commitment supports the 2030 Challenge; whereby all new buildings, developments, and major renovations shall be carbon-neutral by 2030. The upload process is launched with one easy click.
