The aim of this BREEAM issue is to recognize and encourage buildings designed to minimise operational energy demand, consumption and CO2 emissions. The assessment criteria we follow to demonstrate compliance includes the calculation of the Energy Performance Ratio for New Constructions (EPRNC) using BREEAM’s Ene 01 calculator. This calculator takes into account parameters such as building´s primary energy consumption, building´s operational energy demand and the total resulting CO2 emissions. The performance data we need to undertake the assessment and energy model comes as follow:
The new methodology used to determine the credits achieved in the ENE-1 assessment, considers three metrics of modelled building performance when determining the number of credits achieved for this issue: Energy demand, primary energy consumption and CO2 emissions.
In ECOstudio XV® LTD we promote buildings to decrease energy demand and consumption of CO2 emissions. Our Accredited Energy Assessors rely in approved building energy calculation software to study operation data and performance.
