Hi guys,

how to make an uneven distribution of occupancy in EnergyPlus? for instance, having a room empty and others occupied? Is there a quick way instead of setting occupancy one by one for spaces?

@Wolfgang Kaiser This seems very similar to your other post. Would it be OK to merge the two?

Check out the stochastic occupancy simulator from LBNL.

Create an occupancy schedule with 0 for several hours or put in People statements that say 0 for the number of occupants.
