The main direction of development of modern architecture and construction is creation of ecological and sustainable buildings and reduction their negative impact on the environment. Understanding energy aspects in the construction industry is one of the topics considered and discussed when working on innovative construction technologies, career and education of engineers in the 21st century. The use of BIM technology contributes significantly to the energy efficiency of buildings and helps architects and designers to understand the environmental impact of their decisions. The aim of this paper was to present the possibility of prepare an energy analyses of buildings using BIM technology. Three-dimensional BIM models complete with energy parameters, on the basis of which precise energy reports are generated, provide key information for optimizing energy consumption during the design, construction and operation phases of a building and are called Level 6D BIM models. The data obtained from such models can be used to determine the so-called carbon footprint.
