Ecotect info, products & news

Building and architectural firms must adopt new design practices to meet increasing requirements for energy and resource efficiency – delivering designs that minimize the environmental impact of new and renovated buildings, whist seeking opportunities to keep costs low.

Autodesk Ecotect software can assist with:

Whole Building Energy Analysis – calculates the total energy use and carbon emissions of your building model on an annual, monthly, daily and hourly basis.

Carbon Emission Reporting– reports the carbon dioxide emissions for nearly all aspects of a proposed building, including on-site fuel use as well as emissions from power plants.

Day-lighting-calculates the daylight factors and illuminance levels at any point in the model or over the analysis grid, Helps to determine potential savings due to daylight-linked lighting design.

Water Usage and Cost Evaluation-summarizes estimated water-summarizes estimated water use inside and outside the building, based on the number of occupants as well as the building type.

Water Emission Reporting-summarizes estimated water use inside and outside the building based on the number of occupants as well as the building type.

Shadows and Reflections-simulation displays the sun’s position and path relative to the model at any date, time, and location. View how the sunlight enters through windows and moves around within the space.

Visual Impact – helps you to analyse site projection angles, assess obstructions, calculate vertical sky components for any point or surface, and visualize the no-sky line in any space.

Thermal performance-calculates heating and sensible cooling loads for models with any number of zones and types of geometry, and analyses effects of occupancy, internal gains, infiltration and equipment items.
