CBx partnered 2Degrees at their Live Energy Performance Summit last Friday, demonstrating how we can begin to understand our building’s energy performance with very few, but accurate, pieces of information. Our Programme and Technical Manager Sophie Chisholm spoke about how benchmarking can help organisations make good investment decisions and issues surrounding current industry benchmark figures.

Supported by CarbonCulture and the UCL Energy Institute we developed a simple, online tool to collect and analyse delegates’ anonymised data to give a live picture of the room, highlighting the spread of sectors, the total carbon emissions and the spread of the room’s energy performance against industry benchmarks!

Delegates provided a few, high level data-points for one of their buildings and received an individual benchmarking report ahead of the conference. Case studies were anonymised for the presentation, but delegates received a unique identifier code allowing them to distinguish their building from the analysis.
