Energy Modeling and Simulation

Novus has extensive experience with building modeling for the purposes of heat load calculations and energy simulation. When tasked with preparing building energy load models in commissioning or LEED® assessment, Novus aggressively pursues correct equipment sizing to control up-front costs and optimize system efficiency over the life of the building. In general, Novus relies on Carrier’s Hourly Analysis Program (HAP) v4.5 for all building modeling, but also has experience using eQUEST and EnergyPro softwares. A sample of modeling projects is presented below. For more information on this service, see our additional project examples under NYSERDA’s New Construction Program and LEED® Services.
