Is there a measure to import CEC constructions, schedules in OpenStudio? I couldn't find CEC library under FiIe>Load Library.

I want to import CEC Title 24 constructions and schedules to my openstudio model without having to export SDD. Is there a way I can do this in Openstudio?

I exported out T24 information from the CBECC-COM data to create OpenStudio templates, available on the UnmetHours Github here. I don't have all construction sets, and am missing some space type/schedules for data centers. This is also a year old, so use at your own risk.

Eventually T24 data will be added to openstudio-standards. The CA DEER prototypes are available in openstudio-standards now.

@mdahlhausen Thanks. Are these values based on T24 2016 std? How can I find if the library I selected has been imported into OSM? I tried File>Load Library but not sure where the library gets uploaded. I am fairly new to openstudio and working with DOE prototype model to match it with T24 standards.

The objects are available in the right-hand side of the OpenStudio App under library tab. The space type data is based on T24-2016.
