Autodesk developed a workflow using Autodesk software (ImageModeler, Revit Architecture, Green Building Studio) for rapid energy modeling that leapfrogs traditional energy modeling and building audit techniques. Rapid energy modeling is a streamlined process that involves moving rapidly—and with minimal data—from image capture of building exteriors through simplified simulation to building energy analysis. To study the workflow, Autodesk applied it to 6 of their own facilities across 3 continents.
