Using old version of EnergyPlus and Coloring zones by energy consumption

Hi, I have two questions:

  1. Can I use EnergyPlus Version 7.2 with honeybee ? If there is something that forces Honeybee to use the latest version of EnergyPlus can I disable that and use 7.2.

  2. Secondly, is it possible to color different zones according to the energy consumed for cooling annually ?


Hi Sarith,

  1. I assume some of the output fields has changed, otherwise it should work fine. If you want to change the version to 7.2 modify versions in Honeybee_honeybee (…).

  2. Yes. Here is an example (…). Change the preview from the component to custom preview to have the zone colored instead of the floor.


Thanks Mostapha !
