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.

Alongside its sombre warning that every year of delay in implementing these measures adds $500 billion to the energy sector’s mitigation costs, the IEA highlights there are cost-effective solutions to avoid severe climate change, while also enhancing energy security.
