Apidae Accelerator lets users run EnergyPlus simulations effortlessly on the cloud, so they can spend less time crunching numbers and more time optimizing their buildings.
Running your models using Apidae Influence helps you understand which variables matter, and which don’t.
Choose your own inputs and ranges, and use Apidae Factors to visualize and understand how your models are really behaving.
When you’re analyzing an existing building design, use Apidae Calibrator to find models that fit your actual, historic energy usage.
Apidae Chronicle records all of your tests and their results, so you can identify patterns, develop bold new ideas, and follow the evolution of your project every step of the way.
The most sophisticated cloud-based simulation platform yet, Apidae enables engineers to narrow in on the key variables that most affect energy use in their buildings, outsource the number crunching necessary to perform complicated optimizations quickly, and create powerful visualizations of the results.
Apidae splits your model into smaller simulations, runs them in parallel on dozens of machines in a matter of minutes and puts them back together for download, straight to your inbox.
But with most simulation engines, models can include thousands of inputs, and it’s impossible to separate the signal from the noise. Apidae can rank inputs by level of influence on a given output, telling you which building elements will matter most to your objectives, and which you can safely ignore.
Working on a rebuilding project adds another layer of constraints to your models. Apidae makes calibrating your energy models simple, by taking actual weather and energy-use data — from historic weather files, utility bills, and sensor data — and producing the best-fit versions to your models, with confidence intervals on the results.
Apidae gives you the tools to visualize your models and tests dynamically, focusing on the inputs and outputs you care about. You’ll learn exactly how your models are behaving and discover key inflection points, to find better solutions for your buildings.
Apidae keeps track of everything, from the seeds of a concept to detailed project specs. With a running log of your experiments and results, and the ability to create meta-level comments to track the evolution of your project, you’ll never again wonder what you were thinking.
