Energy Analysis Modeling

Worldwide, wind energy is one of the fastest growing renewable energy technologies— between 2000 and 2010, wind energy generation worldwide increased by a factor of 11.

Providing you more time for “Design”

Using computer programs for building energy analysis is not new. Since the late 1960s, the number of computer programs in both the public and private sectors has proliferated. With almost 15 years of development behind some of these programs, it is tempting to conclude that they are sufficiently accurate.

Building energy analysis simulations are used to predict energy flows in buildings. This includes temperatures, envelope losses, system performance, and electrical loads. The building in question may be an existing structure, a modification of an existing structure, or a new design. The accuracy of prediction of the building’s performance depends on three main factors:

  • Accuracy of the input data
  • Applicability of the tool to the building and climate being analyzed
  • Ability of the tool to predict real building performance when given perfect input data

The accuracy of the input data is an important factor. The weather data available for the prediction are generally historical data for a site other than that of the building being analyzed. The data do not perfectly reflect the microclimate at the building site. The accuracy of the building description is constrained by the level of detail incorporated in the analysis tool, the accuracy to which the building properties are known, and the user’s skill, experience, and available time.

Aikomus team of sustainability specialists can assist you with hands on support at any stage of your project. Our modeling and mentoring service offers you help and advice on many areas, including building the complex models you just don’t have the time to do, or auditing models and results. You can involve as at any stage, right from concept to project completion as well as on retrofit/refurbishment projects. When you are ready to move forward toward the energy conservation measures identified in your building energy analysis, Aikomus team can work with your team to assist design an effective plan and manage the implementation of the ECMs you choose. You use our developed energy/thermal models to investigate:
