Energy use and comfort simulations for the built environment
FREDS is a comprehensive energy modelling software tool for architects, engineers and building professionals who require fast, accurate energy simulations to assist with the selection of appropriate building components and systems during early design stages.
Service providing complete and accurate evaluation of the energy performance of a built environment
FREDS calculates energy needs of a construction project based on geographic location, climate, use, geometry and the materials. This information is converted into a computational model and simulated with EnergyPlus® v.8.6, developed by the US Department of Energy. This gives users unparalleled insight into how proposed buildings will perform year round when constructed.
Our platform gives you accurate and interactive charts based on your precise data input.
Developed with the support of the University of Brighton
FREDS has been developed with the support of the the University of Brighton and uses the open-source code EnergyPlus® v.8.6 issued by the US Department of Energy (DoE) in order to to give users a tool to quickly deliver complex building performance analyses. Read more about our team
