A rapid urban de-carbonization scenario analysis tool has been developed. The tool is able to efficiently and effectively generate and populate spatially resolved large scale building scenes, to generate XML input files for the building energy simulation engine CitySim [1], to quickly modify building thermal attributes and develop and analyze de-carbonization scenarios as snapshot modifications to the building scene. The tool has been developed as a series of plugins to the Quantum Geographical Information System (QGIS) [2] application, whereby it can make use of much of the QGIS existing functionality and software libraries. A tip to tail test of the tool is performed on a basic scenario.
