Integrated Environmental Solutions is giving limited free access to it thermal analysis software through VE-Ware

Architects and designers will be able to calculate the energy use and carbon emissions of their buildings with a free software tool from Integrated Environmental Solutions.

Suitable for domestic and commercial buildings, VE-Ware gives users limited access to the firm's Virtual Environment Apache thermal analysis software and will allow the design to be assessed and compared against different designs, layouts and system options with the potential to improve energy efficiency.

Additionally, in the US, as a response to the 2030 Challenge, WE-Ware will assess how the building is performing against this benchmark.

Initially, only models exported directly from Autodesk's Revit platform can be accepted by VE-Ware, but this will be extended in coming months to other packages.
