Abstract

As discussed in Chap.  1, OpenStudio is not a single energy modeling tool. Rather, it is an SDK or platform, designed to reduce the cost and time to create a variety of energy efficiency assessment applications. The OpenStudio Application and PAT, presented in previous chapters, are intended as examples of using the SDK to create software in C++ and Electron/Angular respectively. A third example of creating new functionality with the SDK is the OpenStudio Measure introduced in Chap.  6. OpenStudio Measures are the most accessible means of creating new capability with OpenStudio and represent the “gateway” to more advanced application development. For this reason, the bulk of Chap.  9 is devoted to adapting existing Measures or creating new ones to add functionality to the OpenStudio Application or PAT.
