HESMOS is a research project funded by the EU – SEVENTH FRAMEWORK PROGRAMME with these major objectives:
Provide advanced simulation capabilities to decision makers in the whole life-cycle of buildings, taking into account energy savings, investment and life-cycle costs
Integrate a Virtual Laboratory to connect CAD and eeTools (energy efficiency Tools) in order to enhance building industry actor’s ee-competences

Close the gap between Building Information Modelling (BIM) and Building Automation Systems (BAS)  so that decisions can be made economically (energy & cost related) in all life-cycle phases
Integrate surrounding areas extending current BIM to eeBIM
HESMOS – Product: Integrated Virtual Energy Laboratory (IVEL). More…
