Energy Modeling

CCI Energy offers Building Energy Modeling (BEM) to evaluate the energy use of a building through simulation and analysis of the main energy-related components. BEM is often used for code compliance, green certification (such as Energy Star and LEED projects), qualification for tax credits and utility incentives and real-time building control.

Our services include:

  • Modeling proposed design and providing recommendations to obtain a certain Statement of Energy Design Intent (SEDI) Score
  • Design support modeling
  • Analyzing alternatives as part of the integrated project design process, starting at conceptual stages through construction documentation
  • Evaluating the project’s energy savings for LEED energy credits
  • Performing energy code analysis using the Energy Cost Budget (ECB) method
  • Certifying projects as energy efficient commercial properties under the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPAct) for IRS tax deductions

Building energy modeling (BEM), often referred to as “whole-building energy modeling,” can be used to:

  • Assess the performance of a building while controlling use and operation
  • Design energy-efficient buildings and determine tradeoffs between up-front construction costs and operational costs
  • Predict the monthly energy consumption and bills
  • Predict the annual energy cost
  • Annual CO2 emissions
  • Compare and contrast different efficiency options
  • Determine life cycle payback on various options

CCI is proficient in:

  • ASHRAE 90.1 2007/2010/2013/2016 Appendix G
  • COMNET Modeling Guide
  • eQuest 3-65 Modeling Software
  • REScheck and COMcheck software
  • ANSI/RESNET/ICC 301-2014
