The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has released an updated version of EnergyPlus simulation software for modeling heating, cooling, lighting, ventilating, and other building energy flows.

Additionally, a new version of OpenStudio Legacy Plug-in for Trimble SketchUp is available, which makes it possible to perform EnergyPlus simulations using Sketchup’s user-friendly 3-D drawing interface.
