Compare estimated energy and lifecycle costs. Energy Analysis for Revit® software is a cloud-based energy simulation service powered by Green Building Studio that supports sustainable design. This service is available to subscribers of select Autodesk software or to customers who have a current maintenance plan for select products.
Perform energy analysis on conceptual mass and building element models within your design workflow. Watch overview video (2:37 min.)
The energy analytical model feature in Revit building design software provides tools for fast, flexible creation of models for energy simulation.
Create energy analytical models to suit different design stage needs, workflows, and precision preferences. Create a model directly from architectural building elements and room/space elements, or create it manually using conceptual massing.
Get whole building energy analysis results within Revit, powered by Green Building Studio cloud-based energy analysis service.
Perform energy analysis in the cloud, powered by Green Building Studio running DOE2.2 to provide a wide variety of energy use data. Improve analysis quality and find potential opportunities for energy savings. Present analysis results in a highly visual format for easy comparison and interpretation.
Energy Analysis for Revit uses simple, logical analysis settings that scale with learning and design information.
Intelligent default analysis settings allow for minimal inputs. Refine and inform analysis with additional data, such as building element material thermal properties, space occupancy, lighting, equipment, schedules, HVAS zoning, and building utility histories and associated climate data.
Configure, store, and review energy simulation settings and results in the cloud, or export to industry-standard file formats.
You can also export to a wide variety of exchange file formats, such as gbXML, DOE2, and EnergyPlus output files for use in third-party analysis applications for more advanced energy analysis needs.
This service is only available to subscribers of select Autodesk software or to customers who have a current maintenance plan for select Autodesk software.
