IDA ICE Basic Level course – Online

In this course you will get an introduction to IDA ICE. For all seven lessons of the basic course, films and documents are available online for autodidactic use. Participants are expected to work through the first two lessons independently beforehand (effort approx. 1-2 hours).

    • Lesson 1: Intro (Getting Started)
    • In general, you will familiarize yourself with the operation of IDA ICE and simulate your first 1-zone model. It will be shown which simulation types are available and what they can be used for.


  • Lesson 2: Geo (Geometry)
  • You will import a DWG file and create a multi-zone building. Handling the building volume, inserting multiple windows and using resources are all part of this lesson.
  • Lesson 3: Power (Heating and Cooling Load)
  • You will do a heating and cooling load calculation for multiple zones of a building. This is also an important aspect for most building projects. The procedure can usually replace the standard performance requirement.
  • Lesson 4: IndClim (Comfort Analysis)
    You are doing your initial investigation regarding indoor climate (or comfort) for a single zone. This is an important part of many certification systems like DGNB or Minergie.

  • Lesson 5: Energy
    You will run your first energy simulation for a multi-zone building. Energy simulations are required for all building projects to verify compliance with regulatory requirements. The building is imported via an IFC file.

  • Lesson 6: Daylight0 (Intro Daylight)
    You will do an initial daylight simulation for a multi-zone building. You will learn how to use the Roof-editor.

  • Lesson 7: ResViz (Visualization)
  • You will learn how to handle the inputs of a larger simulation project more efficiently and how to check the quality of the inputs (e.g. through visualizations).
