The Energy Design Assistance Program Tracker (EDAPT) tracks and manages projects, performs automated quality checks of energy model designs, and generates project documentation and reports for commercial buildings. The ultimate goal of this project is to develop cost control best practice guidance that key industry users (building owners, architects, designers, energy champions, etc.) can incorporate into their everyday workflows. This project also includes compiling and disseminating data about the cost effectiveness of net zero energy (NZE) buildings that use innovative technologies and design approaches. By demonstrating how to combine NZE technologies and design approaches into an overall efficiency package that can be implemented at minimal incremental capital cost, this project will help expand the domain of NZE design and construction.
