Coming soon!  If you’re busting for information on any of the following topics, please let us know in the comments below so we can prioritise the next tutorial videos.

  • Heating, Cooling and Ventilation Systems: With the advanced templates and expressions functionality of  Version 2 eTool now gives uses much greater functionality for estimating operational energy loads.  Whilst eTool will never be a self contained thermal performances modelling tool, the output of such tools can now be used to estimate carbon emissions associated with different heating and cooling systems, on different grids and using different fuel sources.
  • Lighting: Use the eTool templates wizard to estimate the environmental burdens associated with different lighting systems.
  • Generic Tenancy Templates: Select from a number of pre-defined tenancy templates that estimate the energy loads of the space based on industry average figures.
