The Leap to Zero Carbon
An energy evaluation tool for architects — an add-on software for ArchiCAD, Graphisoft's BIM application — which aims to provide information about a building's energy performance at the early design phases giving fast feedback for architects on the energy efficiency and sustainability of certain design alternatives.
This new easy-to-use program shows you how much energy and money you can save by making various Design or Remodeling changes to your home. You can easily draw in the floorplan of your own house, then click and drag your windows to their correct location. You can select from lists of standard wall and roof construction.
Quick, visual comparisons are needed for early-stage design. The MIT Design Advisor is a tool which allows you to describe and simulate a building in less than five minutes. No technical experience or training is needed. An annual energy simulation can be run in less than a mintute, and graphical results are immediately available for review.
WOOD FRAME CONSTRUCTION SERIES BY SBEC
This Bulletin Series provides an introduction to high performance wall assemblies (Four Walls) and material selection from science-based, peer-reviewed solutions that can lower energy and carbon usage.

Expectations for Energy Efficiency Measures.
A simple approach to building services sizing based on the peak load leads to oversized heating and cooling systems that run well below their optimum efficiency. The peak conditions only occur on a few days in a year with the majority of time building loads being significantly (even less than half) smaller. Since the calculations used for peak day design apply at any time of the year, it would be.
