  • Provide reports to support LEED EAp2 (Energy and Atmosphere Prerequisite 2 – Minimum Energy Performance)
    and EAc1 (Energy and Atmosphere Credit 1 – Optimize Energy Performance).
  • Assess buildings based on the ASHRAE 90.1 standard
  • IRS tax credit assessments

Key features

  • ASHRAE 90.1 Appendix G PRM simulations use the EnergyPlus simulation engine.
  • Automatic baseline building generation.
  • Guided semi-automatic baseline HVAC system generation through a simple wizard.
  • Automatic parallel simulation of the 4 rotated baseline buildings and averaging of the results, producing results quickly and easily.
  • On screen comparison of proposed and baseline building simulation results provide a quick overview of building performance.
  • Both proposed and baseline buildings can be included in the same model for ease of comparison.
  • All constructions, materials, glazing systems, activities, lighting and HVAC systems required for ASHRAE 90.1 2007 and 2010 are included and automatically set based on the climate zone within the DesignBuilder modeller.
  • Links to the DesignBuilder for LEED online submission system.

Packages

LEED is included in all the packages for engineers.

Dependencies

The LEED module also requires the SimulationHVAC modules. If using complex tariffs the Cost module is also required.
