Getting Stated - Chiller Example

Hello –

I’ve just installed EnergyPlus, Open Studio and Sketchup. I’d like to understand the workflow in order to run the EnergyPlus Chiller example. Do I need Sketchup to do this? Any direction on this is appreciated.

I currently use Revit and the Green Building Studio for energy analysis, but I’m looking for more specific capability for analysis of hotels and chiller / cooling tower installations. I will next be investigating the ability to export gbxml from Revit and leverage this in EnergyPlus.

Thanks, -Will
