IDA ICE (Indoor Climate and Energy) is a new type of simulation tool that takes building performance to another level. It accurately models the building, its systems, and controllers – ensuring the lowest possible energy consumption and the best possible occupant comfort.
IDA ICE is an innovative and trusted whole-year detailed and dynamic multi-zone simulation application for study of thermal indoor climate as well as the energy consumption of the entire building. The physical models of IDA ICE reflect the latest research and best models available, and the computed results compare well with measured data. While serving a global market, IDA ICE is adapted to local languages and requirements (climate data, standards, special systems, special reports, product and material data).
IDA ICE 5
The highly anticipated release of IDA ICE 5 is now here! This is a ground-breaking advancement that marks a new era in building performance simulation. In a world where buildings contribute to over a third of global greenhouse gas emissions, the need for sustainable indoor environments with minimal energy consumption and CO2 emissions has never been more critical for the success of the Energy Transition.
IDA ICE 5 focuses on three primary areas, shaping the future of building design and simulation:
- Indoor Climate Predictions: Unleash the power of precise indoor climate predictions with IDA ICE 5, allowing for holistic studies and optimization of both new constructions and refurbishments. Say goodbye to basic standards and siloed approaches—clients now expect optimal results within defined financial and physical boundaries.
- Building as an Energy "Prosumer": Explore the revolutionary concept of the building as an energy "prosumer" with IDA ICE 5. Gone are the days when buildings merely met minimum requirements; now, they actively contribute to energy production and efficiency.
- Cloud High-Performance Computing Optimization: Using the simulation model for optimizing window properties, supply air temperature or the size and slope of solar collectors has been possible since IDA ICE 4.8. With the virtually unlimited resources in the cloud, hundreds or thousands of cases can now run concurrently, providing quick and cost-effective results.
