Passive Solar Heating

BenATA

Hi all, 

 

Has anyone used Archicad, assessment plugins, or exported Archicad models to assessment tools with the aim of testing and measuring passive solar heating capacities of a building? My office is searching for a way we can quantify the value of passive design, and also contrast and compare different passive design options early in the design process. 

The obvious but very useful value of being able to measure the effectiveness of passive solar heating design early in a project is that an effective scheme can be tested and implemented early on.

 

Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

 

Ben

Maybe EcoDesigner Star can helps.

Recently I found the GreenBIM plugin. However as I know this plugin accounts embodied energy, and helps optimize grey energy in buildings, look at the link

@ Andy Thomson could help answer this question. Meanwhile, you can try FormIt from Autodesk.
