Revit Energy Analysis with Green Building Studio’s New Potential Energy Savings Chart

The Potential Energy Savings chart is a cutting edge new feature that helps design teams understand the features of a building’s design, construction, and systems that can save the most energy. It is designed to help users focus the team’s valuable efforts only on the areas that matter most for reducing energy use. Read more...

Webinar: Using Green Building Studio with Revit

Autodesk Green Building Studio is a web-based energy analysis tool that can help architects and designers perform whole building analysis, optimize energy efficiency, and work toward carbon neutrality earlier in the design process. In this webinar learn how Green Building Studio works, how to perform common tasks with the software, and how to understand energy...
Welcome to a New Building Performance Analysis Blog

Welcome to a New Building Performance Analysis Blog

Autodesk’s building performance analysis team(s) are just launching ‘Building Performance Analysis – Better by Design‘. This blog is by the folks who develop the products and set product strategy. The intent is to engage in more active dialogue with users and work to be more transparent. Let’s check this frequently on all things Vasari, Ecotect,...

Rapid Energy Modeling

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...
