NetZero Energy Building Design and Analysis Tool

How to explore the potential of renewable energy generation during the design process to reach the Net Zero Energy target? This video demonstrates a tool developed on the top of Grasshopper - graphical algorhim 3d modeling, energy simulation plug-in DIVA and the most robust energy building simulation engine EnergyPlus. Python scripting is used to , expanding its capability by adding customizable renewable energy generator components into the model. This tool allows for an interactive way in designing Net Zero Energy buildings through minimizing energy consumption and seeking optimal renewable energy possibility.
