Energy Modelling
About This Project

The Savings By Design™ program, created by Enbridge Gas Distribution helps builders, developers and building owners to design more energy-efficient buildings. The key to this is the Integrated Design Process, which brings together building owners, and their design teams to identify the optimal mix of design elements and technologies to maximize environmental performance. IESC has been providing energy modelling services in real-time for the program since 2012. The following outlines some key aspects of our work with the program:


  • Energy modelling services for Savings By Design™ Integrated Design Process charrettes
  • Design optimization through real-time energy modelling using eQUEST and HOT2000
  • IESC has modelled 70+ low-rise residential, high-rise residential/condominium, and commercial developments and has worked with architects, sub-contractors, interior designers and project managers
  • Recent participants included are: Minto, Brookfield, University of Windsor, Georgian College, Madison Homes and Great Gulf
