Essentially, these typical processes reproduce already existing data, i.e. building models already created by the architect. Accordingly, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) developed a semi-automated process that enables reproducible conversions of Building Information Model (BIM) representations of building geometry into a format required by building energy modeling (BEM) tools. This is a generic process that may be applied to all building energy modeling tools but to date has only been used for EnergyPlus.||Type of material:||Technical Report||Publisher:||Simulation Research Group||Copyright (published version):||2013 Simulation Research Group, US Dept. of Energy||Keywords:||NASA||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed|
