Software Tools

The DOE Advanced Manufacturing Office provides a variety of energy system and energy management software tools to help industrial partners increase energy efficiency at both the plant-level and in specific energy systems. These free and open-source tools and calculators can help identify savings opportunities, monitor progress, and identify potential improvements in your facility. Explore the various software tools below, and check out the Software Tools Info Card as a quick reference for featured resources. 

Featured Software Tool

MEASUR is a software suite that allows end-users (such as energy engineers or facility personnel) to create a model, using facility data, that will optimize and improve the industrial systems for facilities. Using plant-specific operating data, MEASUR helps energy managers assess how much energy each piece of equipment uses annually, plus the estimated annual energy costs.

This open-source software is continually adding new calculators to the suite and can analyze most major energy support systems found within industrial plants, including compressed air, fans, process heat, pumps, and more. Through the various system modeling modules and 40+ equipment calculators, users can analyze and quantify energy savings.
