As we look to design more sustainable buildings, energy models must be nimble enough to influence design rather than simply document performance. Utilizing energy simulation tools to explore hundreds of options during early design helps the design team focus on the features that have the greatest impact on performance. This presentation will introduce Grasshopper visual scripting and the many plugins that can be used to inform design decisions through parametric energy modeling.
