The Holistic Urban Energy Simulation (HUES) platform is a modular, extensible simulation and optimization platform for the study of distributed energy systems from the level of buildings to cities. The HUES platform is developed and maintained by the Urban Energy Systems Laboratory at Empa in collaboration with our research partners in the context of the SCCER Future Energy Efficient Buildings & Districts and CCEM SECURE projects. For more information, see the links below or contact us.
Changes are coming to the HUES platform! We are in the process of developing HUES v2.0, to be released in Fall 2016. Over the coming months, you may notice some changes in the structure, aesthetics and functionalities of the platform.
Explore the platform
The HUES platform consists of: (1) Modules representing models, datasets, scripts and other types of resources, and (2) Collections representing groups of modules that can be used in combination to address a specific problem or question.
