Energy Plus Energy Simulation Software

Free downloadable tool

Building energy simulation program that builds on the most popular features and capabilities of BLAST and DOE-2. EnergyPlus includes innovative simulation capabilities including time steps of less than an hour, modular systems simulation modules that are integrated with a heat balance-based zone simulation, and input and output data structures tailored to facilitate third party interface development. Other planned simulation capabilities include solar thermal, multi-zone airflow, and electric power simulation including photovoltaic systems and fuel cells.
