BESOS is a cloud-based portal of modular, reusable software components for researchers to perform integrated building and energy systems analysis.
Buildings, renewable energy generation and storage technologies and associated energy systems all pose complex, interacting design and operational challenges. Finding high-performing solutions to these problems requires a new generation of computational tools, blending aspects of simulation, optimization, machine learning and visualization.
The project is funded by a grant from CANARIE.
Core modules are:
Modules are accessible by:
The main technologies that underpin the platform are:
The group is led by Dr. Ralph Evins.
We are working with the following research teams to develop specific components and case studies:
