The goal of the talk is put into practice the perhaps self-evident but easy to ignore notion that the success of an energy simulation project often hinges on the choice of analysis tool.

To that end we will look with a critical eye at the details of some modeling projects that TESS has carried out using one such tool called TRNSYS.

The talk will also provide a brief overview of other tools in an effort to place TRNSYS within the wider energy system analysis landscape.
