Energy simulation library for honeybee.

Project description


Build Status Coverage Status

Python 3.7 Python 2.7 IronPython


Honeybee extension for energy simulation.

Honeybee-energy leverages the EnergyPlus simulation engine and the OpenStudio SDK in order to add energy simulation properties and capabilities to honeybee-core. The package also uses the honeybee-openstudio-gem to translate honeybee Models to OpenStudio format.

All of these dependencies are contained within the honeybee-energy Docker image

Honeybee-energy is also used by other honeybee extensions that translate honeybee models to building energy simulation engines, including honeybee-doe2.


pip install -U honeybee-energy

If you want to also include the standards library of typical ProgramTypes and ConstructionSets use:

pip install -U honeybee-energy[standards]

To check if the command line interface is installed correctly use honeybee-energy --help.
