Last month we were excited to announce the release of the Potential Energy Savings (PES) feature in Autodesk Green Building Studio (GBS). The Potential Energy Analysis (PES) feature automatically initiates cloud-based parametric studies for your project when you use Revit or Vasari’s energy analysis feature, or import a gbXML file into GBS. The PES chart is a powerful tool, which allows design teams quickly understand which features of their project have the greatest potential for energy savings.
We wanted to make you aware that we have detailed documentation for the PES feature on the GBS WikiHelp pages. The topics include:
- Potential Energy Savings Chart
- How to read the chart
- How to use the Potential Energy Savings chart
- Example of Interpreting the Potential Energy Savings chart
- Accessing the Potential Energy Saving Chart in Revit, Vasari, and GBS
- How the Potential Energy Savings Analysis Works
- The Mass Runs Process
- Alternative Runs (Details)
- GBS Default Values per Building Type
The PES feature was put through a rigorous validation process before being released. Check out our previous blog posting for an overview of the Potential Energy Savings Validation Study; with more detailed information available on the GBS WikiHelp pages.
Your feedback is important to us. Is this documentation helpful? Are there areas of the PES feature where you would like to see more detailed information?
