The OpenStudio-ERI project allows calculating an Energy Rating Index (ERI) using the Department of Energy's open-source OpenStudio/EnergyPlus simulation platform. The building description is provided in an HPXML file format.
The project supports:
- ANSI/RESNET/ICC 301© Standard for the Calculation and Labeling of the Energy Performance of Dwelling and Sleeping Units using an Energy Rating Index
- ENERGY STAR Certification System for Homes and Apartments Using an ERI Compliance Path
- IECC ERI Compliance Alternative (Section R406)
- DOE ZERH Certification Using an ERI Compliance Path
