  Description     : Building performance modelling software

 ESP-r is a multi-domain building performance simulation program. It
 can model heat, air, moisture light and electrical power flows at
 user specified spatial and temporal resolution. It comprises a
 central Project Manager around which are arranged support databases,
 a simulator, various performance assessment tools and a variety of
 third party applications for CAD, visualisation and report

This is useful scientific/building software, and the only Free
Software for doing thermal modelling on GNU/Linux (until Therm get
round to their proposed licence change 'sometime in the next two

It has taken me several years (of very sporadic efforts) to get this
packaged as upstream have such a shitty build system. It has improved
significantly (to merely crappy) since I first started prodding it so
the effort is now much less herculean.
