What is the best strategy/software to model District Cooling for LEED
This has been a challenge for me on several projects. If I am designing a large district energy plant and an associated building, which will only consume a small amount of the plant's output, how do I properly capture the efficiency of the plant? USGBC guidance seems to leave this fairly open, but I would like to hear what others have done in the past. I typically use TRACE for energy modeling, and have been told that TRACE does not have this capabilty.
Any insight would be appreciated.
