CIBSE Building Performance Awards 2020 – Hysopt is shortlisted

We are very proud to announce that Hysopt has been shorlisted as one of the final four candidates for the CIBSE Product or Innovation of the Year Award – Thermal comfort.

As the only industry Awards that focus on actual, measured performance outcomes – and not just design intent or performance specifications – Hysopt is delighted that the potential of our unique design and simulation software to unlock significant HVAC system energy savings has been recognised.

As Design for Performance becomes an increasingly important factor in the heating and cooling sector, Hysopt is able to close the performance gap between the design of a scheme and its actual performance, by optimising system designs at the outset and providing complete transparency of performance to all involved stakeholders.

Through a Digital Twin of a system P&ID, Hysopt allows designers and end clients to measure how a design will perform against key metrics (energy, carbon);  simulate alternative design options, for example the impact of renewable energy sources; and provide transparency of design performance at every stage from design through to commissioning and operational phases of a project.

For the first time, clients are able to see how planned designs will help them meet their economic and/or ecological goals; or understand how to optimise their existing installations for maximum energy saving.  As a result, Hysopt introduces Performance as the primary market driver for the design of HVAC systems, superseding the traditional motivations of “price, reputation and relationship” which often dominate.
