[Expertise] Energy modeling: a powerful tool for sustainable buildings

Energy modeling is a whole building simulation process that engineers, architects, and researchers use to model the energy consumption of heating, cooling, ventilation, lighting, electronic equipment, and process loads. The simulation can give hourly time step results or even sub-hourly time step results (for example 15 minutes) which makes it possible to carry out a detailed analysis of the thermal

[Expertise] How to optimize buildings airflow and air temperature with Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD)

Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) is a tool used to analyse fluid flows and temperature. In the case of building and environmental engineering, it can be used for internal spaces (large space as warehouse, exhibition space or workshop) or external spaces (district, neighbourhood or cities). In internal space, CFD is used to calculate thermal comfort via the calculation of air speed, air temperature, “age” of air
