DesignBuilder can be used to calculate the following BREEAM credits:

Hea 01 - Visual comfort, Daylighting credits through Radiance daylighting simulation.

Hea 04 - Thermal comfort for naturally ventilated and air-conditioned buildings using EnergyPlus simulation, including Thermal modelling and Design for future thermal comfort. 

Ene 01 - Reduction of energy use and carbon emissions: Energy performance using SBEM or DSM (UK) or EnergyPlus (non-UK) and Prediction of operational energy consumption.

Ene 04 - Low carbon design using EnergyPlus simulation (and Detailed HVAC for the free cooling system options).
