The Measurement Network in collaboration with the Centre for Carbon Measurement is holding an event on the Building Performance Gap and measurements role in helping to close it.
Date: 5th December 2012
Venue: ARUP, 13 Fitzroy Street, London, W1T 4BQ
This event will bring together business, academia and government to discuss measurement and its role in better understanding building energy performance. The event will be broken down into four sessions throughout the day.
Session 1: The importance of closing the gap
It is generally accepted that there is a significant gap between the designed performance of buildings and that of their actual performance. Closing this gap is increasingly important as pressure grows to deliver truly zero carbon homes.
Session 2: The role of measurement in building performance evaluation
In order to improve the performance of a building, it is necessary to understand exactly what is going on. As the use of sensors increases so does the measurement data captured. Understanding what this data really means is vitally important in assessing the performance of buildings. This session will discuss the role of measurement, the transformation of data to information and how this can be used to close the gap in building performance.
Session 3: Tools, methods and models
This session will discuss the tools, methods and models used to measure building performance, their outputs and how these can be turned into valuable information to better inform designers and construction professionals. The panel discussion is designed to be informative, topical and to stimulate novel ideas for better monitoring and measurement.
Session 4: Funding opportunities, now and in the future
The event will close with information on future funding opportunities, both at the national and European level.
