The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.

By addressing all aspects simultaneously, ESP-r allows the designer to explore the complex relationships between a building's form, fabric, air flow, plant and control. ESP-r is based on a finite volume, conservation approach in which a problem (specified in terms of geometry, construction, operation, leakage distribution, etc.) is transformed into a set of conservation equations (for energy, mass, momentum, etc.) which are then integrated at successive time-steps in response to climate, occupant and control system influences.

Web suite of building energy simulators that model energy, comfort, and daylighting performance, and give estimates of the long-term cost of utilities. The simulations restrict flexibility in order to offer users greater ease-of-use and speed. The tool can be quickly mastered by non-technical designers, and runs fast enough to allow them the scope to experiment with many different versions of a design during a single sitting.

It is the first commercially available system powerful enough to automate any organization's energy benchmarking needs. Software can put your organization on the fast track for bulk benchmarking of your customers in ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager. It helps in accomplishing ESP’s goal to provide benchmarking of energy data on a bigger scale. It helps organizations create processes for automatic authentication of customers using custom id values.

Key points concerning the designCombined natural ventilation and mechanical ventilation with air-conditioning and some heat recovery. Use of perforated shading panels to reduce direct solar gain while allowing natural day-lighting. Use of external insulation to reduce heat loss in winter and to provide internal thermal mass, in conjunction with night-time free cooling to reduce peak summer temperatures. Extensive use of natural lighting to reduce energy consumption by artificial lighting.
