CBx Training Day 1: What Data?
Tue 23 May 2017, 09:30 – 16:30 BST
This module will begin with the basics, introducing energy efficiency in both its wider and its legislative
contexts. It will promote literacy in energy and carbon and provide an understanding of the use and
meaning behind the data.
Ticket price includes lunch, and morning and afternoon refreshments.
Delegates will be new to the topic and will be seeking to leave with a good grounding in the language
of building energy consumption.
- Understand building energy consumption in context: climate change and the need to make reductions
- Understand the energy and carbon legislative landscape
- 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
- 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 Communication of energy data: who to and what is the best way?
