Energy analysis tools

Vehicle maintenance facility
Sometimes the simplest things can have the greatest impact when saving energy in commercial buildings. The key is to identify those opportunities. Slipstream worked for several years with Belkin International and Lawrence Berkeley National Lab in a Department of Defense sponsored study to evaluate a Belkin technology designed to identify and quantify specific electric loads operating at any given time. The system works by applying machine learning algorithms to measurements made where electrical service enters a building. More
Back-of-the-Envelope calculator
Our Back-of-the-Envelope calculator is a learning tool that allows anyone to interact with a building as an energy system. You can see real-time energy connections between building components, isolate the effects of changing a single energy parameter, or produce concept-level energy and CO2 emissions estimates. When it comes to building energy consumption, nearly everything affects everything. It's very difficult to get a feel for energy efficiency among the complicated interactions. More
EUI Analyzer
This tool compiles publicly available data on actual building performance alongside industry references. It supports EUI goal-setting for projects that integrate an energy performance target. With this knowledge, users can make informed decisions on future and current building performance standards. More
hybrid ground-coupled heat pumps
Reduce the cost of implementing geothermal heat pump systems on your building projects by going hybrid. A hybrid geothermal heat pump system can lower your costs by reducing the peak capacity of your ground loop and allowing you to install a smaller, less expensive ground heat exchanger. HyGCHP is a software module that can help you analyze this option! More
Future climate data
We provide a set of future climate files for use within your energy modeling tools. Data is available for sixteen locations representing the major North American climate zones. More
