CAN-QUEST, NRCan’s new building energy modelling software, is now available for download

CAN-QUEST

Energy modelling software
Demonstrate performance path compliance with the National Energy Code of Canada for Buildings 2011 (NECB 2011) and support the design of high performance commercial and institutional buildings.


ee4

EE4

Building modelling software
Automate energy use assessments of new building design rules and verify that a design is at least 25% more energy efficient than if constructed to meet Model National Energy Code for Buildings (MNECB) 1997 requirements.


enerpool

Enerpool 3.0

Solar collection software tool
Model the performance of a solar collector when used for a swimming pool.


Heat Pump Pre-Screening Tool

HPAC

Heat pump pre-screening tool
HPAC is a software tool that provides rapid assessment of heat pump systems for a specific set of building parameters with minimum input requirements. HPAC aims at supporting energy management consultants and building engineers in justifying a comprehensive Heat Pump project feasibility study.

PV & Solar Maps

Photovoltaic potential and solar resource maps of Canada
Interactive maps providing mean daily global insolation and PV potential.


houstrad

Recommissioning (RCx)

Pre-Screening tool
Select the best building candidate(s) for recommissioning. This pre-screening tool is designed to be used at the planning phase of the standardised RCx process.


retscreen

RETScreen® International

Clean Energy Project Analysis Software
Evaluate energy production & savings, costs, emission reductions, financial viability and risk for renewable energy & energy efficient technologies.


swift

SWIFT

SolarWall® simulation software
Predict the amount of heat gathered from solar energy, the resulting air temperature inside the building, the amount of energy used by conventional heating systems that has been avoided as a result of using SolarWall, and more.


Vehicle Emission Comparison Tool

Vehicle Emission Comparison Tool
Use the Vehicle Emission Comparison Tool to find out how much cleaner your new vehicle can be compared to the one you drive now. The tool calculates the reduction in Greenhouse Gas emissions of up to 4 vehicles in comparison to a base vehicle.
