SimStadt is the name of an urban simulation environment developed at HFT Stuttgart and of a project of the same name, which in turn is the continuation of a project completed in 2015 (SimStadt). The final report of SimStadt 2.0 is available in German here.

SimStadt, in its current stage of development, is able to use data of a real urban planning situation or planning state for energy analyses of buildings, city quarters, whole cities and even regions. The application scenarios range from high-resolution simulations of building heating requirements and potential studies for photovoltaics to the simulation of building refurbishment and renewable energy supply scenarios. Thus SimStadt is able to accompany e.g. architects, engineering offices, urban planners and municipalities substantially in integrated planning processes and for the definition of measures towards a sustainable (re)design of buildings and quarters.
