I am an engineer working for a company that specializes in energy auditing and modeling buildings to recommend energy conservation opportunities. I am used to using eQuest and am just beginning to look into using EnergyPlus for modeling purposes. Can anyone tell me the best graphical interface to use for EnergyPlus, and what its strengths and limitations are? How much longer does it take to model a typical building in EnergyPlus as opposed to modeling in eQuest?
