Localization Estonia

Make it easier and more efficient to use IDA ICE for projects in selected regions by adding a localization package. Besides a translated user interface and regional locations and climate files, some localization packages also support regional building regulations and include tailored reports.

Energy certificate main input values and the results will be automatically filled to the IDA ICE’s EC report. After that the user can easily fill rest of the required information. The localization reporting is based on the Estonian building code. The report handles all fuels and other energy sources, including renewables.

Main features:
  • Basic external wall constructions with typical U values.
  • Material resources for all kind of materials to be used in the construction layers.
  • Some typical Estonian weather and location files.
  • Based on the Estonian building code.
    • Building template values § 6 “Kasutusajad ja vabasoojus“
    • Profiles from table 2, 3 and 4.
    • Zone templates based on the tables 2-4.
    • Domestic hot water use from § 7 “Sooja vee tarbimine“.
    • Infiltration from § 9 “Hoone välispiirde õhuleke“.
    • Summer time temperature degree hour calculation and reporting based on the building code rules.
    • Building code PEF factors for delivered energy meters.
    • Window airing macro for residential building summer time temperature calculation.
    • Excel report to get basic EC input and output directly from IDA ICE 5.0 to IDA Excel report.
    • Exported energy accounting and reporting changed based on RES directive localized in Estonia, but that counting is not included in the EP value calculation.
    • Another EP value B calculated without on-site RES electricity.
