EnergyDesign

OPTIMIZE BUILDING ENERGY CONSUMPTION WITH POWERFUL ENERGY-ANALYSIS TOOLS

Features

Discover EnergyDesign's basic features and take a glimpse of it's user interface.

3D MODEL

Complex 3D models of a building's shell can quickly be constructed without advanced CAD skills. The model defines geometry, shading, construction types and materials, openings, thermal bridges, energy flows (heating, cooling, lighting, ventilation), DHW and renewables.

ENERGY CONSUMPTION & ENERGY CLASS

All the input is fed into the calculation engine which implements the ISO 13790 methodology to calculate the annual energy consumption and class.

ENERGY SAVING SCENARIOS

Energy saving scenarios can then be easily added to study improvements in efficiency and calculate Return On Investment.

VISUALIZED RESULTS

Energy performance results are visualized with graphs and charts, detailed drawings of insulation, shading, shell facades and openings.
EnergyDesign produces a large number of reports that document the building's energy characteristics and the calculation results.

PARAMETERIZATION

EnergyDesign has been designed from the ground up to allow for easy parameterization of national standards.

Benefits

TIME SAVINGS

Correct mistakes earlier – spend less time later with more complicated changes, offering improved customer satisfaction.

No time wasted importing/exporting data into/from different tools. Simulation and calculations tools, 2D and 3D visualization, drawings, reports, libraries and documentation within the same application.

Minimize the time spend browsing materials and equipment. The libraries come preloaded with a large number of data (materials and equipment available on the market). New data can be easily added to the libraries.

Every new project has default values (where possible) for its most important parameters. These values have been carefully selected and significantly speed up the building modeling.

Frequent references to the standards textbooks can be distracting and interrupt your workflow. Important information, formulas and excerpts from the standards are included in the help.

COST SAVINGS

Ensure that your design satisfies regulations without oversizing equipment.

Prevent numerous changes later once the build is in progress.

Ability to take off material volumes and amounts means less overspend – which in turn leads to less waste on unnecessary materials being ordered and not wanted/ used.

Functionality

TiSoft EnergyDesign helps you assess energy efficiency and performance of any building according to the standard ISO 13790, make all the necessary calculations ensuring standard compliance, and produce a variety of drawings, floorplans, schematics and reports. It will also provide a wealth of information that will assist you in creating energy saving scenarios for sustainable design.

Basic

  • Integrated, stand-alone application. Not an add-on and no add-ons required.
  • Modern, ribbon-based user interface.
  • Unlimited undo/redo steps.
  • Simple installation
  • Simple licensing model. Portable licenses means that you can work on many machines
    using a single license. Purchase or lease your license.

Energy modeling for building performance

  • Intuitive design workflow. The buttons in the navigation tree correspond to the energy analysis steps.
  • Fine-grained control over what is automatically calculated or manually selected.
  • Checks for mismatches, warnings and color-coded alert messages indicate energy consumption limit exceeded.
  • Tables of summaries provide a complete overview of your project.

2D & 3D drawings and models

  • Easy modeling of architectural and electrical elements in 2D and full parametrical preview in 3D.
  • Embedded CAD editor for simple and fast editing of DWG/DXF drawings.

Automated production of drawings and schematics

  • Shadings and shading angles of openings and plot
  • Facade and floor plans
  • Thermal bridges
  • Customize the drawings with your logo or select your own forms.
  • Export to DWG, DXF, PDF, RTF formats.

Reports

  • U-value calculation
  • Energy efficiency calculations
  • Unheated spaces
  • Energy saving scenarios
  • Export to PDF or editable, well-formed RTF format
  • Easily brand your reports and drawings with your logo

Code compliance

  • ISO 13790
