ERGON is an IES Cloud service that allows you to import, manage and interrogate real building profile or schedule data for use within your VE simulations. It enables you to manipulate vast amounts of data and create profiles that go down as low as 1 minute time steps. Therefore you can deal with not only 8760 profiles, but also 525600 profiles!
Within ERGON users can easily import .csv files, graphically interrogate the completeness of data, undertake some initial analysis using in-build analytics, and export as a Free Form Profile Data file (.ffd) into ApPro for use in VE Apache simulations. Users can also generate from scratch bespoke profiles at deep granularity (consisting of up to 10 daily profiles which can be assigned hourly across a year).
Within the VE you can link the profiles or schedules created to Master Templates and Design Options functionality to build up libraries of benchmark data for use in other projects to help close the Performance Gap.
