Event Description

This seminar looks at the difference between projected and actual energy use and efficiency and tries to address the reasons behind it.

Many construction professionals understand that, even with the best intentions, there can be a big difference between the predicted energy performance and actual energy use. These gaps can be huge – some buildings can use over three times the amount of energy for heating, electricity and water.

Is this gap due to design flaws, or unrealistic predictions; poor construction, installation and commissioning; inadequate hand-over, leading to ineffective building operation; occupant habits...or a combination?
