Energy Modeling

STW utilizes computer-based software Energy Pro, Equest and Trane Trace to simulate the energy use of a building throughout an entire year of operation. This is commonly referred to as “annual energy use simulation”.


The U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Rating System (LEEDTM) requires energy modeling to assess the energy use of a building to quantify the savings attributable to the proposed design.


Energy modeling can help optimize the building design and allow the design team to prioritize investment in the strategies that will have the greatest effect on the buildings energy use.
