This article discusses a scripting facility called Measures for the OpenStudio software development kit. The article was published in the journal Energy and Buildings in September 2015. The OpenStudio software development kit has played a significant role in the adoption of the EnergyPlus whole building energy modeling engine and in the development and launch of new applications that use EnergyPlus for a variety of purposes. One of the most powerful features of the OpenStudio platform is Measures, a scripting facility similar to Excel's Visual Basic macros.
