Software applications which are hard to use and fail to make full use of Internet components, scaleability,collaboration and interoperability are significant barriers to the widespread adoption of building energy analysis. In this paper we propose a distributed application architecture which addresses some of these challenges. Demeter, the front-end client, is a customgreen building plug-in developed for the 3D CAD application SketchUp. A Web-based energy analysis server is used to provide energy analysis reports and gbXML. Web services are used to share building information between client and server.
