About Emerging Heating and Cooling Technologies
In the past, developers and those in the construction industry had limited options when it came to selecting heating and cooling systems for larger multi-unit residential buildings. However, technology has come a long way. Also constantly evolving are the wants and needs of developers, tenants, mechanical engineers and architects when it comes to the choice of heating and cooling systems. Buildings need to meet the demands of its occupants today, as well as incorporate sustainable energy solutions for the future. With so many options available and so many different needs to be met, it can be difficult to compare all of the options, even at a high level.
Energy Modelling for Efficient Planning
Energy modelling is a process of developing computer models of the energy systems used in buildings so they can be compared and analyzed. Scenarios are established using a variety of assumptions for the building, including technical and economic considerations. The energy model can give insights into energy system feasibility, carbon emissions, financial costs, energy efficiency and resource use.
