Building energy modelling, is a field that can be described as computationally very intensive. Not long ago Energy Modelling studies were mainly preserved for the research institutions who generally had lot of computational resources at the disposal. Nowadays there are a large number of Open Source platforms which have arrived in the market and these tools can be employed on Building models with variety of options that an architect or energy modeler can have.

Open Office or halls without cubicles had arrived in office layouts over last few years. Quite a few companies have endorsed it for better productivity and also for building office relationships. There will always be strong views in favour and against any idea. Our intention here is not to debate here further on to the adoption practices for new office layout guided by work culture rather we intend to look at energy modelling of a Delhi Building which is basically single floor setup and for all practical practices has been considered to be shadow free.
Energy Modelling in India is slowly catching on. Architects are slowly and steadily realizing the benefits which can be derived through Energy Modelling of Indian Buildings or for that matter any Building. There are various alternative designs which can be applied in a Building to work out most optimized set of options for Energy conservation. Continue reading “Energy Modelling of an Indian Building”
