Tools, Technologies, and Materials

A tool to calculate the energy savings and the life cycle cost  for various types of cool roofing materials and technologies. This is a useful tool builders, architects, engineers, researchers, and code-makers towards the development of cool roof standards and infrastructure.

COMFEN is a user-friendly façade design software tool developed at LBNL which uses US DOE's Energy
Plus simulation engine and is capable of modeling energy performance of complex fenestration systems
and shading devices. COMFEN India has been customized by CBERD for Indian wall constructions, HVAC
systems, operation and internal load schedules. The tool provides extensive reporting options including
energy use, daylighting information, thermal comfort, and cost and payback analysis of window
assemblies.
