Integrating Building Energy Modeling with Microsol Resources and EDSL

By Anna Liza Montenegro | BIM, Sustainability

As with any technology, the tools used for energy modeling are evolving every day. There are building design and energy modeling software programs that could streamline the workflow significantly and helps us in furthering our commitment to sustainable, environmentally- friendly design. Watch this video to hear about the role of energy modeling in the design process, baseline best practices, and suggestions on how designers and engineers can take a leading role in the energy discussion, from a project’s conceptual design to post-occupancy. As you’re working on more low-energy buildings and higher performing buildings, this webinar offers some recommendations and an opportunity to drive design decisions.

During this video, Bob Yori, Director of Business Development at EDSL Tas, talks about the use of:

  • 3D Modeler | For creating building models for simulation & performing daylight analysis.
  • Building Simulator | For adding apertures, internal gains, constructions and performing a dynamic simulation.
  • Results Viewer | For storing, viewing and exporting 2D and 3D hourly results.
  • Systems | Powerful HVAC modeler for calculating actual energy consumption based on the demands predicted by the Building Simulator.
  • Utilities | Tas Engineering comes with a multitude of utilities that link together the various core aspects of the software to perform specific tasks.
