Integrated software tools for accurate whole-building performance simulation.
Used by sustainable design experts around the globe, IESVE software is a fast, accurate, sub-hourly, whole-building performance simulation suite of tools that can model new and existing buildings of any size and complexity. For architects, engineers and contractors, the platform allows cross-team collaboration from concept design to operation. Its power embeds energy and performance assessment across the entire building lifecycle. Integrate Performance Analysis into the heart of the design process.
Analyze the building form & shading, constructions, (day)lighting systems, mechanical systems and compare against your local building code and any green-building rating system.
Heating & cooling loads calculations and HVAC equipment sizing is made easy with automated calculations and reports.
IESVE's 3D model can undergo additional simulation analysis for daylight, airflow, egress; as well as exchange BIM data with other platforms.
Move up to the best in loads analysis. From optimizing room and zone loads to detailed HVAC system and equipment sizing, IESVE offers the most practical, efficient, and accurate tools available.
Building energy modeling predicts building energy consumption, CO2 emissions, peak demands, energy cost and renewable energy production. Graphic-rich reports of building energy modeling metrics and reporting to AIA 2030 is automated.
Daylighting for LEED and BREEAM, electric lighting design, glare prediction, daylight harvesting, daylight autonomy and user-specified visualizations.
IESVE is officially approved and accepted for building energy code compliance by the Florida Building Commission, California Energy Commission (Title 24) and for US States that allow building energy code compliance with IECC and ASHRAE 90.1.
The new NECB Workflow Navigator automatically generates the Canadian Reference Building, so demonstrating compliance in Canada couldn’t be easier.

Integrating Performance Analysis into the heart of the design process, IES offers an unrivalled interoperability with other CAD design and analysis tools. The smooth and robust two-way information exchange between IESVE and BIM platforms speeds up the design process and facilitates digital design.
Digital Design & Operation
Building Performance needs to be at the core of a Digital Design and Operation approach. The IESVE software provides a single platform that can model, predict and verify performance continuously throughout a buildings life cycle.
See how leading design experts and high profile projects have benefited from using the IESVE software.
Focal Engineering used IESVE to provide whole building energy modeling of the Leaf for the purposes of building permit compliance and LEED certification.
CBT Architects used IESVE in unique collaborative and integrated design process, saving Fitchburg State University $1.5 million.
Arup used IESVE to provide energy modeling and sustainability consulting for this unique, high-performance housing complex in Honolulu, which is on track to achieve LEED Gold.
What Our Customers Say
I would definitely recommend the IESVE software to any firm that is interested in designing high performance buildings. The IESVE is a comprehensive, fast, user-friendly package compared to the vast amount of convoluted software available.
We use the IESVE software almost exclusively for energy modelling projects because of the ease of use in creating multi-zone models with complicated geometry and HVAC systems. We have modelled over 60 projects using the software in the past year, and we’ve found with LEED projects we often get very few, if any, LEED review comments, which saves us valuable time.
The ability to view results, for example, air temperatures with a video rendering in VistaPro is fantastic and particularly useful for validating and interrogating your results – you can see exactly what’s going on in each zone. That, for me, is one of the strongest points of IES.
The IESVE software is the most sophisticated software package for building energy simulations in the industry. It enabled us to effectively model the complex and dynamic features of the design, as well as helped us understand and comply with occupant comfort criteria that are critical in a naturally ventilated building.
