    Buildings are responsible for roughly 37% of worldwide global carbon emissions. Decarbonizing our built environment requires tools for setting achievable targets, defining clear strategies, and determining cost-optimal pathways for achievement. To support these developing needs, new tools and opportunities for design services are emerging for developing "building specific” pathways, guiding investments toward electrification. Using customized Revit Systems Analysis- based workflows, Revit users can collaborate with building owners and other stakeholders to create new value streams by capitalizing on information stored within Revit and enabling design with energy and carbon analysis as part of an integrated building information modeling (BIM) workflow. These features allow Revit users to apply "standardized” methods to Revit projects for rapidly and consistently analyzing the energy and carbon (and associated cost) impacts of electrifying HVAC and SHW infrastructure. Impacts of electric tariffs can also be evaluated.

    Key Learnings

    • Learn from experts how Revit Systems Analysis and the OpenStudio/EnergyPlus integration can be used with custom workflows.
    • Learn about how custom "OpenStudio Measures” are used to evaluate the energy and energy costs of heat-pump-based SHW systems.
    • Discover how custom OpenStudio Measures are used to evaluate the energy and energy costs of heat-pump-based HVAC systems.
    • Learn how to quickly evaluate estimated equipment sizes for heat-pump-based SHW and HVAC system options.
