Green building certifications are essential in meeting global climate targets, but here's the issue: certifications like BREEAM and LEED refer to the intended energy performance of a building, in the context of its design and construction stages.But happens once that building is occupied? The building’s energy performance on paper starts to look very different from the daily reality of its actual use. In fact, according to a RIBA CIBSE database, buildings tend to consume between 1.5 and 2.5 times the amount of energy originally predicted by their designers. That means even smart or green buildings on paper could be running inefficiently in practice - and costing you money. This discrepancy is called the energy performance gap, and our latest free guide is all about closing it using the combined powers of building automation technology and real-time energy analytics.
