In the course of your planning you can get an overview of how high the current energy consumption of your installation is or how much energy can be saved. To do this, select the Energy Consumption tool in the Light mode. There you can activate the energy tachometer or select the corresponding option in the display options.

Furthermore, you can set whether the LENI value (kWh/a/m2) is to be displayed in the tachometer, the consumption (kWh/a) or the costs. For all displays, it is possible to freely select a limit that is taken into account as a limit value in the tachometer. For the costs, you can also select a currency.

In the energy consumption tool, all three values are shown next to each other. An energy detector/ sensor can also be used that takes into account the energy consumption savings according to EN 15193. Specify whether constant light regulation is available and what type of presence check it is.

The energy tachometer itself is visible below the CAD window until it is deactivated again by the user. The tachometer can either take the entire project into account ("Overall") or only the scene currently visible in the CAD window ("Current View"). This makes it possible to evaluate and plan individual rooms or storeys. The tachometer also shows you the spectrum of possible energy savings through daylight, which is why the display shows a minimum value for maximum savings through daylight and a maximum value without savings through daylight. The calculation is done according to EN15193.

The data for use times is taken from the utilisation profile, which you can set for each space. The geographical and geometrical information is taken from the project itself.

Do not forget to enter the geographical longitude and latitude in the site tool. It is necessary for the evaluation according to EN 15193.
