Energy simulation software

The Hevacomp Simulator V8i building energy simulation software from Bentley Systems enables designers to calculate percentage performance improvements for designs incorporating construction types that outperform minimum default values. The software compares the actual design to a comparative baseline building by averaging the results of four baseline simulation orientations.

The Hevacomp Simulator V8i building energy simulation software from Bentley Systems enables designers to calculate percentage performance improvements for designs incorporating construction types that outperform minimum default values. The software compares the actual design to a comparative baseline building by averaging the results of four baseline simulation orientations. It then compares those results with the design building simulation run to determine eligible energy-efficiency credit points, in areas such as building fabric, lighting, and equipment, for use in the project's LEED certification application.
