CBx Training Day 2: Informing Changes
Wed 24 May 2017, 09:30 – 16:30 BST
This workshop will cover how to interrogate energy and carbon data in order to extract insight and instigate change. Delegates will learn how to use the information to inform the design process, the construction process or to tweak the use of an occupied building..
Ticket price includes lunch, and morning and afternoon refreshments.
Delegates will have an understanding of energy consumption in buildings and will already have had some experience of dealing with it for a project. If they have had no previous experience with energy consumption on a project, they must attend Training Day 1 as a precursor..
- 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?
