CAN-QUEST modelling guide

The guide to the CAN-QUEST energy modelling software provides recommendations on how to model energy use in buildings and how to demonstrate compliance with the National Energy Code of Canada for Buildings 2011 requirements. It also provides recommended modelling procedures in three key areas:

  • Rules for dividing buildings into thermal zones and spaces
  • Sources of information for performance values of envelope components and building equipment
  • Guidance on modelling simple and complex heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems
