simulation of 1 million dwelling - PI - 11-15-2016

Dear all,

I am new to this forum and I haven't used JePlus before (I am familiar with EnergyPlus). I hope some of you can help me with the following problem:
I have a file with 1 million different buildings and for each building I have ~30 different building characteristics (area of the building, insulation rate, ventilation system, heating system, type of dwelling etc.).
I would like to simulate those buildings.
I know 30 building characteristics are not enough to make a proper simulation therefore my plan is to make a basic model and change characteristics I know. Because it is impossible to change these 30 characteristics manually per dwelling I am hoping that jeplus can help me with that. Do you think this is possible or should I use another tool to do this. And if you think JePlus is a suitable tool can you give me some advice how to start?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi PI, welcome!

jEPlus is designed for such projects, so you have come to the right place. The quickest way to get started is this video: https://youtu.be/mgE4jYabnko. If you cannot access Youtube, the video can be downloaded here: http://files.jeplus.org/jEPlusVideoTutorial1.wmv
