GBE Whole Building EE EC SC calculator
About: 


A few years back I (BrianSpecMan) was asked to speak about resource efficiency to post graduates in architecture at London South Bank University (LSBU) and to support their studio projects by introducing Embodied Energy (EE) and Embodied Carbon (EC) and getting the students to calculate the impacts of their current studio design projects. 

Knowing this task could generate a car-boot sale of responses that would be difficult to compare I decided a common tool was necessary and I set about creating it:

GBE Whole Building U-Value to In-use Carbon Calculator 

Subsequently I was asked to address energy in-use and carbon in-use and created a whole building calculator to determine energy consumption and carbon generated or released.

Updating GBE Whole Building EE EC SC calculator

This second tool was a lot more elegant than the first so I revisited the first:

User interest

I took the time to publish the calculators

Future development of this calculator

Future Calculators

Some of the data offered is Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) data, a wider dataset than ICE’s EE & EC

If the particular surge in interest turns out to be substantial we could turn this interest into a Crowd Fund campaign to generate money to afford the time to create the GBE Element to Whole Building LCA tool.
