Updates to the Energie Carbone & HQE tools

Mise à jour d'Energie Carbone à la version RSEnv, amélioration des saisies et corrections des calculs des seuils:
  1. Les paramètres 'projet' nécessaires au RSEE sont saisis au niveau projet directement
  2. L'utilisateur doit associer les zones du RSET avec celles de la modélisation et modéliser plusieurs bâtiments dans un même projet de manière distincte.
  3. Nouvelles distinctions dans la partie 'description du bâtiment' est faite - pour faciliter la saisie des données nécessaires au calcul ACV et des niveaux de performance.
  4. La possibilité de rentrer manuellement les coefficients nécessaires aux calculs des seuils Carbone quand on n'a pas de RSET > v1.0 ou de RSET tout court. 
  5. Les valeurs seuils intermédiaires des indicateurs de performance sont maintenant visibles
  6. Correction concernant la prise en compte des bénéfices quand ils sont négatifs pour les ignorer. 
  7. Correction pour ignorer les bénéfices export quand le champ export n'est pas rempli et que toute l'énergie est auto-consommée 
  8. Nouvel outil excel d'aide au calcul de consommation en eau potable pour Énergie Carbone (sur le centre support)  
Notes importantes aux utilisateurs de l'outil Energie Carbone;
Pour les rares cas ou un RSET/RSEE contient plusieurs bâtiments, cette modélisation se fera à présent à l'échelle du projet sur la page principale de l'outil Energie Carbone. Veuillez copier coller votre conception pour modéliser les bâtiments de manière distincte. Le paramètre bâtiment (désactivé) sera supprimé début Septembre pour permettre aux utilisateurs d'adapter leur projet à cette nouvelle configuration. 
Le RSET est maintenant chargé à l'échelle du projet, si votre modélisation contenait plusieurs RSET, assurez-vous que le bon RSET est chargé au niveau des paramètres du projet. Si besoin vous pouvez contacter l'équipe support  pour vous aider à recouvrir les anciens fichiers RSET.  

Autres mises à jour:
  1. Carbon Designer pour créer des variantes rapidement en phase amont, maintenant disponible dans l'outil HQE selon EN 15978
  2. Fichier import excel dédié en français
