eQUEST® v3.65 is a sophisticated, yet easy to use building energy use analysis tool which provides professional-level results with an affordable level of effort.

This freeware tool was designed to allow you to perform detailed analysis of today’s state-of-the-art building design technologies using today’s most sophisticated building energy use simulation techniques but without requiring extensive experience in the “art” of building performance modeling. This is accomplished by combining a building creation wizard, an energy efficiency measure (EEM) wizard and a graphical results display module with an enhanced DOE-2-derived building energy use simulation program.

the QUick Energy Simulation Tool

Something for everyone…

Imagine a building energy simulation tool comprehensive enough to be useful to ALL design team members, yet so intuitive ANY design team member could use it, in ANY or ALL design phases, including schematic design. eQUEST is well named because it provides something the you’ve been looking for, but have been unable to find a sophisticated, yet easy-to-use building energy analysis tool. With eQUEST, you’ll be able to provide professional-level results in an affordable level of effort.

Evaluate today’s building technologies at the speed of today’s design process

eQUEST was designed to allow you to perform detailed analysis of today’s state-of-the-art building design technologies using today’s most sophisticated building energy use simulation techniques but without requiring extensive experience in the “art” of building performance modeling.

eQUEST = enhanced DOE-2 + Wizards + Graphics

This is accomplished by combining a building creation wizard, an energy efficiency measure (EEM) wizard, and graphical reporting with a simulation “engine” derived from the latest version of DOE-2. Reliable detailed simulation has never been easier!

eQUEST features a building creation “wizard” that walks you through the process of creating an effective building energy model. This involves following a series of steps that help you describe the features of your design that would impact energy use, such as:

  • architectural design
  • HVAC equipment
  • building type and size
  • floor plan layout
  • construction materials
  • area usage and occupancy
  • lighting system
