Abstract

Energy simulation software is a key enabler in building design to optimise energy efficiency, reduce operating costs, comply with code requirements and qualify for incentive programs. However, numerous software are available and it could be difficult to choose the most suitable one. This paper presents a comparative study of three very popular tools among firms in the province of Quebec, Canada: EE4, SIMEB, and eQUEST. Based on a simulation experiment (using case study), these tools were evaluated based on their Usability and Information Management. Qualitative and quantitative outcomes are used to assess the characteristics of the tools.
