This module will begin with the basics, introducing energy efficiency in its legislative and wider contexts. It will promote literacy in energy and carbon and provide an understanding of the use and meaning behind the data.
Delegates will be new to the topic and will be seeking to leave with a good grounding in the language of building energy consumption.
- BIM coordinators
- Local Authority
- Structural Engineers
- Quantity Surveyors
- Sustainability professionals
- Facilities Managers
- Understand building energy consumption in context: climate change and the need to make reductions

- Understand the relationship between energy and carbon and units
- Understand a building as a system - heating, cooling, lighting, BMS and the data generated by each
- Understand the differences between asset ratings and in-use energy data (i.e. performance gap)
- Identify energy data from various sources and understand their pros and cons; EPCs SAP, SBEM, DECs. TM22s, building log books, sub-meters, BMS
- Understand which areas of energy use are controlled by each profession - i.e. can architects and engineers just control the asset rating or can they also affect how the building is used once occupied?
- In-use case studies and findings from TSB BPE covering: common pitfalls of metering systems, and common problems with persistence of information from design to operation
- Benchmarking: What is it? What is it important? What is included / excluded?
- Understand the important of data accuracy, interrogation and reconciliation
- Be able to communicate energy data; to identify the right people and communicate in the right format for the receiver
