ESBO title

ESBO is a simulation tool for building design optimization based on EQUA’s building performance software IDA Indoor Climate and Energy (IDA ICE).

 
ESBO allows you to experiment with different building designs and equipment in order to predict the consequences on energy use and comfort. Room-level and central HVAC systems may be evaluated, as well as glazing, shading and construction materials - all without the need of creating a complete geometric model of the building.
