Hi everyone,

I am currently engaged in research on indoor ice rink energy consumption simulation and have problems modeling the ice rink due to the lack of a dedicated module in EnergyPlus.

I read several publications of Professor Krarti at The University of Colorado at Boulder link text and found an issue on the EnergyPlus Github site where the source code is hosted link text, but it seems that EnergyPlus has not integrated an "ice rink" module yet.

Besides, I also find eQUEST can model an ice rink, but I can not find a sample ice rink model based on a new version.

I would like to know if there are any new ways to simulate the energy consumption of indoor ice rinks or construct an energy model of it.

Your assistance would be immensely appreciated.

@YuqngYang if you search for "ice rink", you will find two other posts here and here. They are ~3 years old, but they might be helpful.
