Energy is a hot topic. Improved energy performance results can lead to significantly lower energy bills, more comfort, lower environmental impact, a healthier indoor climate and lower management related costs. Therefore, it is both economically and socially relevant to have a clear approach upon energy performance of buildings and possibilities for improvements.
DEMO has developed the software application RE Energy, which enables housing corporations, real estate managers and advisors to efficiently perform energy performance audits and generates energy performance certificates. For housing corporations, the determination of the energy index plays an important role in determining the maximum rent for their homes, on the basis of Directive Rental Housing (BHW).
In order to fully balance the factor energy performance in building modelling, design decisions and management plans, it is highly recommended to include all energy parameters in a BIM-based building model. For this reason, RE Energy can effectively be linked to the BIM model using open-format IFC files.
RE Energy is a part of the RE Suite for developing and optimally managing your real estate. You can check out the RE Energy leaflet.
