Help Build It Green beta-test our new tool to estimate whole-building energy and water use to support utility allowances and zero net energy projects
Build It Green has developed a powerful new cloud-based modeling tool to quantify whole-building energy use, water use and greenhouse gas emissions for single family and multifamily residential projects.
The Energy-Water Calculator represents significant improvements over existing energy modeling tools, including updated algorithms and the ability to capture the energy savings and GHG emissions associated with water use. The Energy-Water Calculator is now ready for beta-testing by raters, energy consultants, builders, affordable housing developers, local government sustainability staff, and other professionals. Apply now to test the tool on your projects and provide BIG with valuable feedback as we finalize our tool for a full release.
The calculations have been vetted by national and state experts. In addition, the California Energy Commission has reviewed the domestic hot water calculations. The Energy-Water Calculator was developed by Build It Green thanks to generous funding from the Energy Foundation. Questions about the Calculator? Contact [email protected]
