Greetings.

Has anyone looked at using Revit to address the requirements for the new Canadian Model Energy Code?  I am being asked many questions and hoping to connect with users who are working on this topic.

The Perscriptive method looks at percent glazing and R-values in the walls.  

I was hoping that the Energy Analysis menues would give me some help here but I found none.  

Has anyone gone here?  Has anyone found a reasonable workflow ... beyond the old fashioned methods of surface area take-offs?

It's a big topic up here ... hoping for some collaboration.

thanksIan

buildings in australia are subject to a star energy rating system.

a new industry has popped up in energy assessing. you need to be accredited (do a short course) and then you can assess buildings using the accredited softwares.

usually a program called first rate 5   is used,

another is Accu-rate

and yet another BERS Professional.

dwellings need to comply with a minimum of 6 energy stars and commercial buildings 5 stars.

these programs take into account climate zones, building orientation, glazing, insulation, thermal mass etc. 

all good fun but time consuming, hence the rise of accredited energy assessors specialising in this field.

see attached link:-  http://www.nathers.gov.au/

these programs may be adaptable to your region.
