SBCImage1IES has been chosen as one of the 5 finalists for this years’ Ecobuild and M&S Big Innovation Pitch. At 5pm on Tuesday 7 March IES Founder and Managing Director, Dr Don McLean, will take to the stage in Ecobuilds’ main conference theatre to pitch the IES Simulation Based Control tool to the judging panel.

The winner, which will be announced on the night, will have the opportunity to become an M&S supplier. IES will be up against Arup and Airedale, Organic Response, Protomax Plastics and CBES with their respective innovations.

What is the IES Simulation Based Control tool?
Currently a prototype in several buildings, the IES Simulation Based Control tool helps provide optimal operational performance though a calibrated building simulation model. Uniquely operating every few minutes the model can assure optimal performance to suit the building owners’ objectives e.g. low-energy, low-carbon, reduced running costs. It achieves this by combining simulation modelling with real-time building and weather data to provide advanced, cloud-based performance prediction and optimisation. The calibrated operational model can also be used to deliver:

– Full Real and Virtualised Building Performance Data-sets
– More accurate Energy Conversation Measures scenario analyses (what ifs)
– Fault Detection
– Continuous retro-fit Analysis
– Monitoring and Verification
– Meaningful KPIs & Optimisation

IES recently held our annual BIM4Analysis Faculty webinar. There were two main areas for discussion: Our new BIM Interoperability Navigator An overview of Bi-Directional workflow between Revit and IESVE The world around us is changing; the world’s population is growing exponentially set to reach 10 Billion by 2030. Urbanisation is rising rapidly with more of […]

For many building types, maintaining space conditions will account for a significant proportion of the overall energy consumption. With the effects of climate change expected to increase the external air temperature, buildings will see a shift toward an increased cooling need. If we are going to reduce our carbon emissions whilst minimising running costs then […]

Once again, IES is proud to be sponsoring the CIBSE Building Simulation Group Award, an annual competition open to postgraduate students from the UK and overseas for the best research project undertaken at Master’s level or equivalent to incorporate the application of building simulation tools. The Awards will be announced at the CIBSE Building Simulation […]
