Sefaira recently announced that it has integrated EnergyPlus as a thermal analysis engine to work alongside Sefaira Fulcrum (Sefaira’s existing engine for rapid energy modeling). Both of these are now available within the award-winning Sefaira web application – the industry’s leading software for high performing building design. EnergyPlus is a comprehensive building energy simulation program developed by the US Department of Energy, built over several decades by US government research labs. With the new announcement, EnergyPlus is now accessible to architects & engineers, thereby empowering the world’s top designers to leverage leading technology in designing sustainable buildings.
Sefaira today announced its entry into the Latin American market, signing up new customers in Brazil, Mexico and Honduras.
Sefaira provides architects and other building designers with best-in-class software for high performance building design. With Sefaira, architects can leverage the power of cloud computing to seamlessly and intuitively implement the green building design strategies and achieve sustainability and performance goals.
Sefaira announced that it has added a feature to assess passive heating and cooling strategies, giving architects the ability to evaluate multiple passive design options in parallel in a matter of minutes during early stage design. This new Thermal Comfort Analysis capability is powered by EnergyPlus, the industry standard energy-modeling engine developed by the U.S. Department of Energy.
Thermal Comfort Analysis provides architects with valuable information about whether a building will maintain comfortable conditions when mechanical systems are turned off. This information helps architects design buildings that do not need a mechanical heating and cooling system, otherwise known as passive buildings.
Early stage analysis of custom and standard options helps architects London – 20 May 2013 – Sefaira, a cloud-based energy analysis software company helping the building industry design and retrofit buildings for energy efficiency and sustainability, today announced that it has enhanced its flagship software, Sefaira Concept, giving architects the ability to analyze bespoke shading devices.
Sefaira Concept has always provided powerful parametric analysis of shading strategies, delivering whole building, hour-by-hour analysis in just seconds.
