Simulation of energy efficient buildings

The simulation of energy-efficient buildings comes from a much more general issue. The demand for energy per capita worldwide is growing, and it's becoming worrying. On the other hand is the development of alternative energy sources.

One way to avoid a major impact on the environment is to diversify the energy matrix, with special attention to clean and renewable sources, like solar energy. And so, combining the shelter of social man with his stay in nature sustainably.

These are called sustainable buildings, that aim to balance what is taken out and what is returned to the environment. Among the concepts that make up a sustainable building, the rationalization of energy use through energy efficiency stands out.. Energy efficiency is adopted in building projects in order to rationalize consumption, avoiding waste.

Method of simulating energy efficient buildings

Despite extensive knowledge about the building variables that act on consumption, there are still some difficulties in defining an efficiency indicator for an efficient building in absolute terms.

Although, it is possible to use some software that simulates the consumption of electric energy in buildings to obtain important parameters, even if not absolute, to plan an efficient building from the ground up, as also, so that already-built buildings can be modified in search of better energy results. Thus, the simulation of energy-efficient buildings brings not only environmental benefits, as well as economic for all sectors in which it is used..

The advantages

The Procel seal guarantees this dynamism and accessibility in adaptation, no standardization is required in the solutions to be used.

Furthermore, incentive programs like o End, from the BNDES, it's the ANEEL's Energy Efficiency Program, have exclusive lines of credit that can help you make changes..
