Vectorworks Tip 429 – Energos – What is it?

Notes current - Page 5

Energos is a way of calculating energy requirements of the building. In some countries the building code focuses only on insulation values, which controls the amount of heat that escapes from the building. This is a limited way of looking at energy consumption building because it takes no account of the energy produced inside the building, or any energy that is brought into the building to help keep it warm. Energos on the other hand looks at the entire project including insulation, orientation, ventilation, solar energy, et cetera.
