  • We all have to use them from time to time
  • Some times we rely on manufacturers to provide U value calculators
  • Students need to get to understand their designs better, so do Architects.
  • Design and Decision Tools (D&DT) need them embedded
  • UK Government TSB has funded a dozen £1m D&DT software developments which will become commercial software
  • In Canada the goverment is paying for RetScreen to develop free to use national calculators
  • In the UK BRE have the monopoly on compliance calculators: SAP, SBEM
  • In Germany they have Passivhaus Planning Package PHPP
  • AECB’s CarbonLite interprets Passivhaus PHPP for UK climate and energy mix
  • Doing calculations long hand seems incredibly time consuming so GBE turns them into Excel calculators whereever possible and is making them available to download and use
  • GBE is also creating GBE Datasets to work with GBE Equations and GBE Calculators

    I was wondering if you ever considered hanging the structure of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what you’ve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so peoplle could connect with it better.
    You’ve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

    Hi! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with Search Engine Optimization?
    I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good success.
    If you know of any please share.

      I use Yeost SEO integrated into WordPress and it scores (traffic lights) and comments on your pages for SEO and readability and lets you know whats wrong so you can correct it and get from a grey, red, amber to green.
