OpenStudio 1.1.0 Release

OpenStudio 1.1.0 is now available for download from the OpenStudio website. This release adds support for manual calibration of simulation results from monthly utility data. A new reporting measure type was introduced that has access to input data and simulation results that can be used to create custom reports and to perform automated quality control checks. Another major new feature is simulation using cloud computing resources through Amazon EC2. Users first set up an account with Amazon and link it to OpenStudio. The ParametricAnalysisTool (PAT) can then be used to run simulations locally or on Amazon EC2. This feature is still under active development to improve process connection and performance, and users are strongly urged to carefully review all disclaimer text and provided EC2 monitor web links in the cloud configuration dialogs.
OpenStudio 1.1.0 supports EnergyPlus 8.0 along with a number of new HVAC components.
Videos demonstrating new features will be uploaded soon to our website and YouTube channel.
