-In the recent version 1.5, Biomet supports **PMV/PPD** (Predicted mean vote), **PET* **(Physiologal Equivalent Temperature),​ **UTCI* ** (Universal Thermal Climate Index) and **SET* ** (Standard Effective Temperature),​ but more are likely to be integrated.

  The indices vary in their level of complexity and therefore calculation time. While UTCI is regression based and quick, PMV requires the iterative solution of one energy balance equation and PET requires the solution of two of them and is hence much more calculation time expensive. Compared to former version of ENVI-met, the calculation of Thermal Comfort Indices as a post-processing step allows to modify e.g. personal settings without running ENVI-met again.  The indices vary in their level of complexity and therefore calculation time.
