IES develops tool to help close performance gap

IES’s Ergon Cloud serviced enables users of its Virtual Environment (VE) technology to import, manage and interrogate real building profiles or schedules and use them in VE simulations. They can use measured data from the actual building they are investigating to create profiles that enhance model calibration or use normalised benchmark data from other buildings of the same type.

Such profiles can be used to improve the operational performance of buildings and help close the performance gap by bringing design models closer to reality.
