The construction industry accounts for 40% of global GHG emissions and for 36% of energy consumption. With the CAALA Plugin for CAD software, architects can run cloud-based, real-time energy demand analyses and lifecycle assessments in the early design phase. The tool can minimize the carbon footprint and energy demand by generating building design variations fulfilling all regulations. CAALA is the first software combining real-time calculation of operational and embodied energy demand based on 3D models.
