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.

NGS OPINION

Voiced by BrianSpecMan at the launch event

It is the Building Fabric and the properties of the materials used, its U value, Decrement delay, vapour open/closedness, thermal mass, etc. that determines the energy performance of the building, the Mechanical and Electrical Serives only meet the shortfall that the building fabric fails to address, by putting more energy in to meet the demands.

Carbon Buzz focusses on the parts that meet the shortfall without adequately documenting the building fabric so the opportunity to learn anything valuable about the building fabric has been missed and much of what can be leaned is missing, helping to maintain business as usual.

Carbon buzz can record information about building fabric as optional extra information, but is has a very low profile in the tool, and no lessons can be leaned from it.

Despite this major omission this is a good first step towards a very useful tool.
