BSRIA to develop a ‘framework’ for future energy efficient residential development
Construction and building services consultancy the BSRIA has recently announced a new project for developing a ‘framework’ for future energy efficient residential development.
The Innovate UK project aims to minimize new buildings’ ‘performance gap’, which is the gap between the intended and actual performance of buildings in terms of energy use and comfort. As part of its efforts, the BSRIA has launched a one year Innovate UK funded feasibility study, which started at the end of 2015.
The aim of this study is to inform the development of a ‘framework’ that can be applied to the delivery of energy efficient homes with greater attention on operational performance. To help track the process, the study is considering the use of metrics/Key Performance Indicators to help project teams evaluate and track the feasibility, buildability, delivery, commissioning, handover and management of energy efficient homes once they are occupied.
HeatingSave Energy Monitor – the perfect solution for monitoring energy consumption in new and existing buildings
Achieving energy savings within the residential sector can be easily achieved by implementing advanced advanced BEMS (Building Energy Management System) solutions, and this is exactly where the HeatingSave system might prove its worth, since our solution allows customers to achieve immediately savings of up to 30%+ on their energy bills.
This is achieved by optimizing the energy consumption levels within any building with the help of an advanced heat-loss algorithm that creates a specific profile for any building and based on that, switches heating on later if its warm and off earlier if its cold.
It also automatically adjusts your boiler depending on how warm it is outside – save up to another 10%.
Furthermore, the system also offers an advanced automatic occupancy detection system that allows the temperature to reduce to a background when areas are not used and quickly brought up to temperature when they are being used.
