Home Energy Simulator

Home Energy Simulator simulates buildings with their heating installation, micro-CHPs or photovoltaic units respectively.

Rather than extrapolating the results from a few reference days to a complete year, as other programs do, Home Energy Simulator performs continuous simulations with a time resolution down to 30 seconds. Instead of estimations it provides exact analyses of the building and the heating installation or micro-CHP, respectively. The result is a reliable analysis of any scenario, suitable for engineers, constructors and home owners.

Overview

Whatever you are interested in, outdated heating installations, current models or upcoming technologies: Home Energy Simulator most rapidly analyzes any building with any type of energy installation. In just one minute you have a detailed report on heat and electricity, operational characteristics as well as costs of operation, maintenance and effectiveness. At the push of a button you have a comparison of your installation and any alternative or reference installation.

Expertise and professional competence

Our team of heating specialists, energy and control experts, and software engineers has developed an interactive easy to use application. Step by step you are guided from the definition to the analysis and appraisal of your building and installation.

Since more than ten years EUtech develops process and plant simulations. A one-of-the-kind collaboration with leading companies of the energy and heating sectors gives us the power to consequently enhance our tools. Due to our development work for nameable manufacturers we today integrate the technologies of tomorrow into Home Energy Simulator.

A special simulation tool for CHP units will be part of the VDI directive “VDI 4656 – Planung und Dimensionierung von Mikro-KWK-Anlagen”
