Carbon Buzz

Get REAL about building energy use

Collaborative – Free – Anonymous – Real


If you haven’t done so already then we encourage you to take a look at the new website at www.carbonbuzz.org and discover how easy it is to upload and share your building energy use data.

With over 60 case studies published (June 2013), we hope that you will get involved with this industry-wide initiative to get REAL about actual energy savings.

Carbon Buzz

  • ‘Upload Share Compare’
  • Designed & Actual Building Energy Performance
  • Benchmarking opportunity
  • Carbon Buzz
  • This is about results of existing buildings not a design evaluation tool
  • This had £750,000 TSB Government investment as part of Design & Decision Tools (approximately 20 projects supported)
  • Participants:
    • Aedas Architects Limited, Judit Kimpian
    • RIBA
    • CIBSE
    • BRE
    • UCL
    • XCO2 ENERGY Limited
    • Feilden Clegg Bradley
  • Includes Usable Building Trust Probe studies
  • Project ambitions:
    • benchmark and track project energy use from design to operation
    • To create an authoritative database on design and actual energy use of buildings.
  • Scope: Newbuild, commerial and residential, operating energy only.

Comment:

  • Enables users to record actual energy performance against designed performance,
  • It has capability to record building fabric but not in much detail.
  • Suggestion: needs to be capable of recording the building fabric method of construction materials and U values,
  • it needs to be about the building fabric that reduces the need for energy inputs, its not just about services that deliver energy to meet the shortfall.
  • An Outline Specification (as built) may be sufficient
  • Consider uploading CAD files (better still BIM ready CAD file?)
  • See GBE EVIDENCE BASED CASE which tries to do all there things and more
