Re: [EnergyPlus_Support] Distribution licence??
No, for that you do not need a distribution

I am currently developing a CAD based user interface software for energy
plus that will be commercial but I won't (at least in the beginning)
deploy Energy Plus files as part of the package. It will be the
responsibility of the end user to install Energy Plus files on the
computer. My software will create idf file and point it to an Energy Plus
engine location. My question is: Do I still need a distribution licence?

Subject: Re: [EnergyPlus_Support] Adding a new module
Theoretically, you could send the module to the developers for review,
but there are a few more steps that you would need to do (documentation,
example file, etc).
Collaborative developers or developers with access to source are the
third party ways we have done new developments. Licensing details
can be found here:
A collaborative developer has access to source code, the developer's
yahoo group, and other resources. We also would discuss new
features at our twice monthly conference calls (including the developer)
and suggest changes, etc.
Let me know if you wish to pursue this further (private email
The only ways to implement something without access to source code is
either to make an EMS program internal to EnergyPlus simulation or
perhaps a module in BCVTB or MatLab using those facilities to link in
with the simulation.

How can i add this new module to energy plus?
I have been reading the developer's guide, in page 43 'Inserting the new

Can you help me?
