Abstract

The purpose of this article is to present a virtual learning simulator which allows rating a building for its energy performance through a smart and adaptive system according with the user´s needs and background knowledge level. This simulator can operate in different modes and used as a learning tool, design tool and information system. A study to assess the learning skills with the use of simulator started in January 2011. The simulator will work on a web platform oriented for a virtual community in the buildings sector, including access to rated buildings databases, information on materials, equipment and design solutions that lead to best energy performance. It also includes communication tools to collect relevant information for the regulatory authorities to promote continuous improvement of the legislation.
