CYPETHERM Improvements is a tool for energy audits and analysis of improvement measures in buildings.
The graphics interface of CYPETHERM Improvements is similar to the other CYPETHERM programs. It has a tree-structure on the left of the screen where users can define:
- The initial situation of the building (which describes its energy performance at its initial situation)
- Improvement measures of the building, which include the energy performance that is obtained having applied them, with its description and associated expenses.
The initial situation of the building and improvement measures can be imported from files in XML format that are generated by CYPETHERM energy simulation programs that use EnergyPlusTM (CYPETHERM HE Plus, CYPETHERM RECS Plus and CYPETHERM EPlus) and with CYPETHERM C.E. for Italy and CYPETHERM REH for Portugal.
By importing XML files, the great potential of CYPETHERM improvements can be developed, i.e. as a complement of the CYPETHERM energy simulation programs of CYPE.
