Design and decision tools – leading edge software tools for carbon efficiency

The 'Design and Decision Tools' programme was an Innovate UK and EPSRC funded competition in 2009 for the development by British companies of new design and decision tools to help in the construction of greener buildings. 

The competition funded the development of twelve prototype software tools.  Many of the tools are now available to the market (see below)
