GenOpt can be coupled to Energy Plus 8.2. In fact, GenOpt can run with any text file based I/O program, see the GenOpt Manual sections 9 and 11.

You may need to change the configuration file to have it implement the "Command" variable your operating system associates with E+ 8.2 instead of E+ 7.0. This is a simple text file modification located in the directory "cfg" which is located in the main GenOpt directory.

This type of modification, if you're not familiar with a command line, may be confusing and difficult. Once you spend some time and figure out command line operation for your operating system though you will find it quite easy. Good luck!
