New Open-Source Software Will Accelerate Energy Efficiency in Buildings

Software developers will be able to access data that SEED users choose to share with them, add new functionalities, and develop proprietary add-on tools. The aim of SEED is to provide an open-source, plug-in architecture so that analysis and visualization tools can be added in a modular manner, as well as an Application Programming Interface (API) so that external software tools can have read-write access to the data. These plug-in and API functionalities will be available in the next major release of SEED in late summer 2014.
