Re: [EnergyPlus_Support] Real buildings in EnergyPlus?

In terms of simulation tools for design practices you have to pick and 
choose different tools depending on the type of project.  In many 
instances, a good spreadsheet will do.  Some times you might want to to use 
a tool to evaluate natural ventilation potential so you will use a tool 
such as esp-r or Trynsis to model part of the building to examine the 
effects of natural ventilation.  Carrier HAP or Trane Trace are valuable 
for strictly design purposes.  DOE2 or Energyplus can be used for whole 
building energy simulation.  Radiance can help with daylighting 
simulation.  Energy simulation requires a number of tools.  It is 
worthwhile testing a wide range of them to see how you can use them in your 
specific practice.
