USING PYTHON AND EPPY FOR A LARGE NATIONAL SIMULATION STUDY

Jason Glazer

Abstract: A large study was performed using EnergyPlus to assess the maximum technically achievable energy targets for commercial buildings. The study looked at 16 different building models across 17 climates based on the PNNL prototype building models and applied 30 different maxtech" energy efficiency measures to each. In order to perform the analysis scripts were developed to modify each building model to implement each individual energy efficiency measures using the open source Eppy scripting library based on Python. In addition ...
