Green Building Energy Simulation and Modeling presents essential insights into concepts and applications of building energy physics. The authors provide a brief, but rigorous, explanation of various modeling methods for building energy systems, order reduction techniques, and building energy simulation platforms (BESPs) that is followed by BES model validation techniques, testing and evaluation. The book provides designers with the tools and methods they need to validate building energy systems and seize every opportunity to achieve greater energy savings and higher rating scores.

Key Features

  • Provides green building computer code
  • Presents tactics on how to use energy studies and simulation to make informed design decisions
  • Helps readers understand how and when to apply the different types of energy simulation at the appropriate design stage
  • Evaluates passive and active strategies for limiting energy consumption and producing energy onsite


Civil Engineers, Mechanical engineers, Architects, Construction Project Managers, Building service and energy control engineers, Energy auditors and managers, and Environmental Engineers

About the Author

V.S.K.V. Harish

Developed a building energy system (BES) model in MATAB/Simulink.

Energy transfer model for all the building construction elements such as wall, roof, etc was developed using finite difference method and solved using Cranck-Nicholson scheme.
