AECOsim Energy Simulator by Bentley Systems


AECOsim Energy Simulator from Bentley Systems is an application for the immersive design, simulation, and analysis of building mechanical systems, environmental conditions, and energy performance. The application provides comprehensive simulation for both quick and comparative evaluations, as well as for detailed engineering, allowing designers to timely assess design trade-offs in both new construction and retrofits. AECOsim Energy Simulator contributes to the creation of better performing, more sustainable buildings that consume less energy; provide greater occupant productivity, comfort, and safety; and control lifecycle operational energy costs for owners. Its EnergyPlus simulation engine is the industry standard-setter developed and maintained by the U.S. Dept. of Energy, and it can improve project quality with accurate simulations that closely correspond to actual building performance. AECOsim Energy Simulator users can interoperate with Bentley applications and BIM or CAD formats including MicroStation, AutoCAD, Revit, and others. Workflows can incorporate i-models and gbXML, IFC, DXF, and DWG formats.
