The latest release, ENVI-met 4.4 focuses on the implementation of Wall & Roof Greening with the new Green Façade module. This module allows to measure green wall and roof performances the first time. The effects of wall & roof greening can now included in the building’s energy performance as well as on the outdoor microclimate. The update also includes the MONDE editor that allows vector-based Model Area editing and Full Forcing which drastically enlarges the boundary conditions for various meteorological parameters.

What is ENVI_MET

ENVI_MET is a holistic microclimate model, in which all the different elements of an urban or landscape setting interact which each other. The models’ calculation modules span over a wide range over different scientific disciplines from fluid dynamics over thermodynamics to plant physiology or soil science. It is the heart of the ENVI_MET model philosophy to integrate all these different approaches into a single model, so that all elements can interact with each other and reproduce the synergies we can observe in reality.

This holistic approach makes ENVI_MET different to other models for environmental simulation. There are many models which calculate the air flow between buildings or the solar input on facades, but there are only very few, if any, that see the whole system in one picture and consider the multitude of processes that take place between the elements.

After purchasing ENVI_MET – how do I get started?

The software is available 24 to 48 hours after confirmation of payment. You will receive an electronical license key that allows you immediate use of the software and a download guide.

What is the difference between the Student and Science License?

The ENVI_MET SCIENCE licence offers universities and research institutions the advanced full-size model with all features only for research and education purposes. It cannot be used for any projects with external funding aiming to generate financial win or based on funding generally available to the free commercial market.
The STUDENT licence reflects our commitment to education and Science and allows as well individual students to install ENVI-met on up to 2 computers, except parallel computing. This maximal usage is only one year and cannot be renewed. For buying the STUDENT license you need to send an approve of enrolment to

What are the minimum system requirements to run ENVI_MET?

The performance mainly depends on the CPU clock speed and the number of CPU cores. Small RAM capacity (less than 4GB) increase the simulation time of larger model areas (larger than 200 x 200 x 30 grids), so a 64bit CPU and operating system is highly recommended. The performance of the simulation does not depend on the graphics card since all calculations are performed by the CPU.


Minimum system requirements:

  • CPU: Intel Pentium D or AMD Athlon 64 X2
  • RAM: 4 GB
  • OS: Windows 7 / Windows 8 / Windows 10
  • VIDEO CARD: no specific requirements
  • FREE DISK SPACE: more than 5 GB


Recommended system requirements:

  • CPU: modern 6 or 8 core CPU, Intel i5-8400 – Ryzen 5 1600X or better
  • RAM: 16 GB
  • OS: Windows 7 / Windows 8 / Windows 10 (64bit)
  • VIDEO CARD: no specific requirements
  • FREE DISK SPACE: more than 30 GB


High end setup:

  • CPU: modern 16 or more core CPU, Intel i9-7960 – Ryzen Threadipper 2990WX or better
  • RAM: 64 GB
  • OS: Windows 10 (64bit)
  • VIDEO CARD: no specific requirements
  • FREE DISK SPACE: more than 100 GB
