Document Description
This proposed research project will develop Building Energy Standards Modeler software. The Building Energy Standards Modeler will provide a web-based platform and software tools for expressing building energy standards in a computer-readable format, which will foster clarity and consistency in the standards and provide all compliance software vendors with one interpretation of the standards. By building on current work at LBNL to imporve EnergyPlus' capabilities as a Title 24 reference program, adding rule set creation and building description functionality, and integrating these with the development at NREL of a Standards Development Software Platform that uses EnergyPlus, the proposed Building Energy Standards Modeler will demonstrate the capabilities of EnergyPlus in handling Title 24 compliance analysis.
