[EnergyPlus_Support] Rare materials

Dear all,
this is Carmen Herrero from Spain.
I would like to ask you something: Is is possible, or more than 
possible accurate, to introduce in EnergyPlus  rare materials not 
often used in regular buildings? I mean, i´m a member of a 
researching group about new materials for building envelopes. So, for 
instance, if we study vegetal envelopes and we manage to aproximate 
overall properties for that heterogeneus material such as thermal 
conductivity, specific heat...etc would it be accurate to introduce 
the data in the idef editor and treat the rare material as if it was 
Now, i´m trying to simulate small examples to learn how to use the 
programm, but in the near future i will have to apply the program to 
evaluate alternative ecological buildings. So, am i losing my time?
thanks a lot on advance.
by the way, i live in Madrid, Is there any spanish EnergyPlus user 
living in Madrid?

Best regards,
Carmen Herrero.
