Sketchup Can NOW be used for Energy Analysis?


Wow, this is really interesting. Apparently Integrated Energy Solutions, IES, now has included Sketchup in the list of tools that can integrate with its building performance analysis tools to indicate yearly average energy consumption and carbon emissions. It remains to be seen whether the typical sketchup model used for visualization can be adjusted to work with IES. According to IES, it is a simple 5 step system. It is a great time to be involved in BIM

I haven't worked with this latest plugin, but according to IES, there is now a seemless path for energy analysis that includes Sketchup and Revit.
