CLIMATE DASHBOARD

full design reports generated from futur weather files

ECHOES: Design & development

This tool is not a data visualisation tool.

It automatically analyses a series of environmental metrics from weather data files,

And rapidly provides an even advanced climate study report that gathers useful design information.

ADVANCED PSYCHROMETRIC CHART

Indicators

Outdoor and indoor total comfort percentage of the year

Indoor comfort percentage of the year with different strategies

Comfort difference movement

OUTDOOR TEMPERATURE ANALYSIS & ADAPTATIVE CONFORT BAND

Indicators

Average temperature and temperature range for the average hour of each month

Average radiation and radiation range for the average hour of each month

Percentage of the hours in each month that the outdoor temperature is comfortable

HEATING / COOLING DEGREE DAYS

When do we need cooling or heating ?

How many degree hours do we need for cooling or heating for the whole year?

How much energy do we need for cooling and heating each year in a specific building ?

What is the impact of modifying Heating and Cooling base temperatures by +-2° ?

RADIATION ROSE DIAGRAM

What directions produce the most solar gain ?

Methodology

Total radiation (direct + diffuse)

Sky density method : Tegenza Sky

DESIGN STRATEGIES FOR OUTDOOR COMFORT

When  are outdoor conditions comfortable in each hour of the year? In sun or in shade, with wind or without wind?

When to apply shade or nature ventilation for comfort improvement? How much is the improvement?

Indicators

COMFORTABLE : % of the time when 9°C< UTCI < 26°C (UTCI = 0)

EXTREME CONDITIONS :  % of the time when UTCI < 13°C (UTCI = -3) and UTCI > 32 °C (UTCI = 3)

POTENTIAL IMPROVEMENT OF OUTDOOR COMFORT BY DESIGN

How much can we improve outdoor comfort by applying different design strategies ?

NATURAL VENTILATION

How often can the windows be opened in this climate?

Indicators

Full open facades possibility per year

WIND ROSES

Where do the winds predominantly come from ? On an monthly basis ? What about day vs night ? And temperatures ?
