IES VE-ware tool goes live

The new VE-ware tool from IES is now available for download. VE-ware is a free Building Energy and Carbon assessment tool suitable for all building types across the world. The software is designed to assess performance and benchmark your design against the Architecture 2030 challenge, providing feedback on a building energy consumption and carbon dioxide emission. The tool is very easy to use…

You start by inserting your Revit geometry data.

Define where your building is located in the world.

Define the following parameters
Building type
Construction materials
Heating and cooling system
Room types

Running a simulation gives you the following data
Energy consumption
Co2 emissions
