PC Version
Cost:   $999 (U.S.) for Windows platform; check website for other pricing, documentation with purchase
Version 3.0 supports all current Windows platforms (95, 98, ME, NT and 2000), Solaris, Intel and Sparc (full 64 bit on Sparc), and Linux (Linux support is in beta now). Included with this version is the -112 MOD's from LNBL, on-line update of the software via the Internet, complete electronic versions of all DOE-2 manuals, on-line help and a new Graphical User Interface (GUI).
The new interface is a 100% Java application and is fully portable across all Java compatible systems and includes a "plug-in" feature that allows users and third parties to write extensions to the interface and then just add them in. FTI has built a library on their web site to post both freeware and commercial plug-in's to promote a free and open environment to benefit the DOE-2 user community. The plug-in architecture offered in the GUI is simple and examples of code and instructions on how to write plug-in's can be found on our web site. Once a plug-in is written you simply copy the JAR file into the plug-in directory and then start the program and the new plug-in is now part of the program.
Finite Technologies has been providing a commercial version of the DOE-2 software since 1991. The current version 3.0 is now shipping. Pricing for FTI/DOE is $999 for Windows platforms, please check our web site for pricing on other platforms.

VisualDOE 4.0 is a powerful, yet easy-to-use "front end" to DOE-2.1E, the industry-standard building energy simulation program. VisualDOE is developed and supported by architects and engineers as a tool for designers and building scientists to accurately model the performance of building design alternatives. VisualDOE is also commonly used to perform energy calculations for LEED certification. VisualDOE covers all major building systems including lighting, daylighting, HVAC, water heating, and building envelope. Among the wide range of simulation results are electricity and gas consumption, electric demand, and utility cost. Hourly results are available for detailed analysis.

Desiccant screening software. DesiCalc, developed by the Gas Research Institute, screens desiccant cooling applications. It allows estimation of annual or monthly energy loads, using hour-by-hour simulations, and costs for 11 typical commercial buildings in 236 geographical locations in the United States. The tool uses electrical equipment selected from a library of five typical systems and compares the performance of any of the systems with an alternative configuration, the chosen electric system supplemented with a desiccant dehumidifier. DOE-2.1E is DesiCalc's computational engine that runs in the background. The program also uses the latest TMY2 meteorological database. Windows 95, NT. Cost of the program is $295 including documentation; add 8.75% tax in IL, 4.5% tax in VA. Add S/H $20 [VISA, MC, AmExp]
