In this paper, the design and development of a web databasefor the purpose of storing and processing data produced by a complete building energy analysis is presented. Additionally, a web site that provides access to the database as well as a set of processing functions is outlined. The data stored are read from special input files produced by the TRaNsient SYstems Simulation suite known as TRNSYS.The database and the web site that offers access to it provide safe storage and retrieval of TRNSYS projects while also allowing sharing between users to promote cooperation and to fasten solving. The use of Internet in this application allows users around the world to access the database anytime, lifting the constraints of local storageusing hard disk drives or portable storage solutions.
