The service from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) provides a repository of standardized data about features commonly found in buildings. It service the needs of architects, designers, and construction personnel to create models of building energy use over time. Data for individual building components describe energy performance characteristics of windows, doors, walls, etc. matched to weather information.
API methods support search for specific building components either by type or keyword. Returned data provides descriptive facets to help narrow a search. Methods allow download of performance profiles for selected components for incorporation in an energy model for a building as a whole.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
