Abstract: This paper describes software for the Apple Macintosh microcomputer that aids architecture students and professionals in incorporating energy considerations in the earliest phase of the design process. The user interface is a "sketch pad" environment that has been designed to foster design activities rather than analysis and allows users to input a building by drawing it at any level of detail. It provides an evaluation of the building's loads for 24 hours for four days. Calculation algorithms are simplified, both to speed up the computer's response time and to minimize the amount of specification the user must be burdened with. The program is written in "C" and will run on the Macintosh SE or Macintosh II. Energy Scheming 1.0 is currently being Beta tested.
