Bridging the performance gap - Understanding predicted and actual energy use of buildings

BRE’s Andy Lewry says ‘Buildings rarely perform as well as their designers predicted – energy consumption and costs can be as much as double what was expected with damaging financial implications for occupant organisations. This ‘performance gap’ and how we tackle it is one of the most critical challenges faced by the built environment sector. As well as outlining the issues, the presentations show how a freely available tool can be used to find the solutions and how M&T can aid this.’
