The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), through the Building Energy Tools program, sponsors development of a variety of building energy design tools from tools that analyze the properties and performance of major building components (e.g.,lighting) to tools that evaluate the energy and economic performance of whole buildings. DOE also sponsors development of new simulation approaches, validation of algorithms, and evaluation of tool performance. DOE disseminates and supports its; tools through partnerships with the private sector. In this demonstration, four whole-building energy tools are presented: PowerDOE, Energy-10, Building Design Advisor, and Softdesk Energy.
