I would like to model a rain water collection system on OpenStudio. How can I do it? Is that implemented yet? An answer to a similar question on 2014 sayed it wasn't possible yet...

I saw other related question on the forum however they applied to the EnergyPlus and not to the OpenStudio.

Does anyone knows something about this?

Can you include the link to the "similar question" from 2014?

This isn't implemented in the OpenStudio App nor SDK yet. You will need to write an EnergyPlus measure (see Measure Writing Guide) to do that.

Aaron Boranian covered how to do this in EnergyPlus here and this could also help.
