Energy Simulation or Energy Modelling has still not caught the building owners attention. Planners, Architects generally attempt Energy Modelling only with the objective Certification.  But the fact is Energy Modelling can be used for many reasons.  Energy Simulation can inform us about Energy Decisions from the earliest phases itself.

Energy Efficiency and Smart Cities

Smart Cities have been defined in many ways. The urban urban migration leading to vertical growth in city landscape is a necessity in any smart city. Smart cities lays a lot of emphasis on Green Building and Energy Efficiency. The concept paper on Smart Cities neatly sums up the energy concerns “Good areas to focus energy efficiency measures would be the building material used, the transport system, sewerage and water supply systems, street lighting, air-conditioning systems and energy consumption in buildings.”
