The opportunities for demand reduction and cost savings with building demand responsive
controls vary tremendously with building type and location. Smart Energy is developed
with the aim to fulfill the need of tool which can help in demand reduction.
Engineers and Architects can now calculate requirements for the energy performance
of buildings using Smart Energy to provide energy consumption analysis via various
Graphical reports. This assessment tool predicts energy and demand savings, and
thermal comfort impact for various demand responsive strategies. Users would enter
basic information such as building type, floor area, building envelope, orientation,
utility schedule, etc.
The Smart Energy also incorporates several pre-defined default commercial building
types with typical construction, interior loads, operating
