Brief Overview

The Energy Analysis Report is designed to give architects a detailed yearly perspective on a project's energy consumption and performance against benchmarks. This report highlights the immediate impacts of design decisions on a project's energy efficiency, carbon emissions, and potential LEED points, making it an indispensable tool for both design optimization and client presentations.

Through a combination of graphical representations and detailed breakdowns, architects can quickly grasp the energy implications of their designs and communicate these findings effectively to stakeholders.

Required Data

  • Geometry: Accepts files from Revit, Rhino, ArchiCAD, and SketchUp.

  • Standard Intake Form: Must be completed to guide the analysis.

  • Project Basis of Design or Equivalent Report: Provides the foundational design parameters.

Deliverables

  • Summary Energy Analysis Report: Includes a comprehensive overview, energy results, key project inputs, and detailed analysis sections.

    • Project Overview: Basic project information, including type, area, and energy codes.

    • Executive Summary: Condenses the report's findings into a single, digestible page.

    • Energy Results: Breakdown of Whole Building EUI, operational carbon emissions, and more.

    • Key Project Inputs and Assumptions: Detailed inputs used for the analysis.

    • Analysis Details: Explains the methodologies and standards applied, such as the 2030 Benchmark.

  • Access to analysis.tool Features: Limited access to the analysis.tool suite for further exploration and optimization.

Why You Would Want the Report
