  • Focuses on learning while being interactive through examples and exercises on energy simulations
  • Explains the building physics and the science behind energy simulations without using high level mathematics
  • Explores integrated design approach by explaining the interactions between various building systems and their effect on energy performance of building
  • Provides hands-on training of building energy simulation tools such as DesignBuilder and EnergyPlus
  • Covers the basics of a range of applications of energy simulation


This book describes various components and systems of a building and their effect on energy consumption, with the help of an energy simulation tool. The book explains simulation input parameters, along with how to do analysis of the simulation output. With minimal use of mathematical equations, the basics of building physics and energy simulation are explained using words, illustrative examples, charts, tables, and figures.
