Abstract [en]

This degree project aims to investigate the potential and possibilities for conceptual energyanalyses in the early stages of the design process. Many key decisions are made in theearly stages of a project regarding the shape and orientation of the building. Conceptualenergy analyses can provide the architects with insight regarding different design option’srelative energy performance.As the demands for more sustainable buildings increases, so does the need for earlyenergy analyses. Performing analyses in the early stage requires many assumptions andguesswork which could lead to a large margin of error.The offering from Autodesk is a module in Revit Architecture/MEP and the stand aloneprogram Project Vasari (under development). It is an interesting tool for architects with aneasy and quick work flow and can easily be implemented in today’s design process.The analysis of the results generated shows that the program has a margin of error thatmake some of the features less useful. Comparing the results with an analysis done in amore established and sophisticated software suggests that the result at this stage cannot betrusted.
