Empowering Cities for a Sustainable Future: ENVI-met Pioneering Urban Transformation

Experience the precise analysis and simulation of microclimatic elements with ENVI-met, the leading software for microclimate studies in cities. With its advanced features and high-resolution 3D modeling, ENVI-met empowers architects, landscape architects, cities, and universities to gain profound insights into the urban microclimate.


ENVI-met is a high-resolution 3D modeling software that accurately simulates complex microclimatic processes. It provides detailed insights into the impact of environmental factors on urban design, supporting informed decision-making in urban planning, green infrastructure development, and climate change strategies.


ENVI-met stands out among other software products by employing advanced numerical algorithms to accurately simulate complex interactions. It enables detailed analysis of microclimatic conditions within urban areas, specifically in terms of building heating and cooling and human thermal comfort.


In response to the significant impact of climate change, the development of healthier and more resilient cities becomes imperative. ENVI-met plays a crucial role in evaluating the potential of new buildings, green spaces, and urban planning to mitigate climate change effects and foster a sustainable future for all.

Leading software for high-resolution 3D modeling of urban microclimate to analyze the impact of buildings, vegetation, etc. on the urban climate with the aim of planning climate-friendly cities and improving the quality of life in metropolitan areas - designed for professional use by architects, landscape architects, urban planners etc., as well as for research at universities.

Introducing ENVI-met V5.5: Unleashing Advanced Features and Enhanced Performance

“ENVI-met provides us an incredibly powerful tool for looking at a series of Environmental Quality and Outdoor Thermal Comfort criteria while we are in the design process. This was unthinkable not so long ago and will revolutionize our workflows. The integration via plugins with other tools like Sketchup puts these tools at our fingertips and gives us an agile and decentralized methodology perfectly suited to the realities of work life today.”

Steven Velegrinis, Director
Head of Masterplanning at AECOM in the Middle East

“We have been using the ENVI-met software for more than 10 years to study the impact of vegetation in urban environments. We chose ENVI-met because it is one of the few softwares that realistically simulates the most important climate processes – such as the interactions between soil, plants and atmosphere – in urban environments and thus analyzes thermal comfort in cities. ENVI-met has already contributed massively to simulation scenario modelings for São Paulo and is continuing to help us model complex scenarios, including topography, faster.”

Full professor at the Faculty of Architecture and Urbanism, University of São Paulo, Brazil

“Werner Sobek Holding has been working with the ENVI-met simulation software since 2007. We use it for numerous projects at home and abroad, especially for construction projects with challenging climatic conditions. ENVI-met takes the interactions of wind, green spaces, solar radiation, buildings and many other factors into account – and helps us to design climate-friendly and sustainable cities.”
