What you'll learn

In this tutorial you'll learn to run an energy simulation using Revit 2014. We'll begin with a simple massing concept with floors that have already been massed in place. From there, we'll set a few parameters associated with our building and site like location and target glazing percentage. Once we've defined our project and location, we'll then run an energy simulation to understand our design's potential carbon footprint as well as our annual and life cycle energy consumption costs. These tools used early in the design process can get your concept on the path to sustainability with ease. Software required: Revit .
