Zero Tool  
To maintain the ability to calculate a Baseline EUI for projects using CBECS 2003, which is the basis for the Architecture 2030 Challenge, Zero Tool has added as the primary baseline calculation tool.  See About Zero Tool for additional information.  

Parking use type added 
Up to three types of parking can now be associated with projects as a secondary use type to enable more complete energy consumption documentation for projects. 

Energy modeling tool additions 
EnergyPlus Ladybug Tools and Cove.tool have been added to the energy modeling tool options.

Measured Energy Use Phase
In addition to design energy performance, projects are able to create a measured energy use phase to enter and/or import measured energy use for their projects.  The ability to compare design energy performance to measured energy use is now at your fingertips...

Did you know:
If you the "Energy Modeling Cost" for design phases is entered for energy modeled projects, the Return On Investment (ROI) for energy modeling can easily be calculated for the project!
