Description

Energy Modelling in EnergyPlus and OpenStudio (Module 7). Energy Plus is a whole building energy simulation program that engineers, architects, and researchers use to model both energy consumption for heating, cooling, ventilation, lighting and plug and process loads and water use in buildings. OpenStudio is an open-source software development kit (SDK) for building energy modeling (BEM). The OpenStudio project includes a graphical application for creating and editing models, running simulations, and viewing results.

Total Seven Module course is about Energy Modelling using OpenStudio interface of Energy Plus software.
