Abstract

After mastering the basics of energy modeling with OpenStudio and EnergyPlus, there are still many advanced modeling features left to explore. A few include:
  • Radiant heating and cooling systems that can achieve deeper savings for some climates and building types,

  • Distributed energy resources and storage systems may be added to design net zero or off grid buildings,

  • Large refrigeration for grocery store and warehouse models,

  • Airflow network models may be added for improved infiltration and natural ventilation assessment, and

  • EnergyPlus’ EMS scripting language which allows users to model custom building controls and sequences of operation.
