What is it?

OpenStudio® is a cross-platform (Windows, Mac, and Linux) collection of software tools to support whole building energy modelling using EnergyPlus and advanced daylight analysis using Radiance. OpenStudio is an open-source (LGPL) project to facilitate community development, extension, and private-sector adoption.

The graphical applications include the OpenStudio SketchUp Plug-in, OpenStudio Application, and the Parametric Analysis Tool. The SketchUp Plug-in and the Openstudio Application are maintained by the OpenStudio Coalition, which was founded to maintain and develop these graphical applications for the building energy modelling community.
