The following titles are essential reading for those who wish to:
Non-domestic hot water systems (AM14)
Hot water systems are one of the major energy systems in a building and one of the most frequently recommended for improvement in Advisory and Recommendation Reports. This publication enables engineers to design efficient heating systems, covering both new buildings and existing building refurbishment and upgrading. Plant selection, installation, commissioning, maintenance and performance are all covered in full.
Energy and Carbon Emissions Regulations: a guide to implementation (EPBR)
This valuable publication is your key source of information on the Energy Performance of Buildings Regulations. It serves as a comprehensive companion guide to the various regulations and covers Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs), Display Energy Certificates (DECs), inspection of boilers and inspection of air conditioning systems.
Energy Benchmarks (TM46)
This publication offers a comprehensive outline of building energy benchmarks; what they are, how they were developed and how to use them. As well as the benchmarks themselves, it provides details of separable energy uses and includes weather and occupancy adjustments. If you want to understand the DEC process better and see how ratings compare with energy benchmarks, this publication is for you.
Inspection of Air Conditioning Systems (TM44)
This is the standard to be used for all air conditioning systems which require a report under the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD). This publication provides guidance on carrying out the required inspections, including specific guidance on generating advice for the user.
Building Energy Metering (TM39)
Good metering underpins the energy monitoring and targeting process which is an essential part of energy management. The guidance in this TM will enable energy managers to ensure that they are getting the information they need from their meters, to enable them to deliver added value to their business through good energy management.
Building log book toolkit (TM31) (includes templates on CD-ROM)
Part L 2006 requires that building owners be provided with summary information about a new or refurbished building, its building services and their maintenance requirements in a building log book. CIBSE TM31 explains what sort of information the log book should contain. The CD-ROM contains examples of completed log books and an editable template for producing log books.
Energy assessment and reporting method (TM22)
This document offers an established methodology for assessing the energy performance of an occupied building based on metered energy use, and includes a software implementation of the method. This document will help you prepare DECs and Advisory Reports and diagnose energy issues by looking at demand profiles.
Refurbishment for improved energy efficiency: an overview (KS12)
This publication brings together the wide range of sources of information available from both CIBSE and BSRIA to demonstrate to building services engineers the refurbishment options that are available to them.
Guide L Sustainability (part of a Sustainability Toolkit comprising Guide L, Introduction to Sustainability and Online Tool)
As the demand for sustainable building continues to grow at a phenomenal rate, CIBSE has produced one of the most important and far-reaching guides ever to help you take the necessary steps to ensure your buildings and building projects are genuinely sustainable.
Guide M Maintenance Engineering and Management
This Guide is intended for the benefit of all those involved in the operation and maintenance of engineering services. It is an update of the CIBSE Guide to ownership, operation and maintenance of building services published in 2000.
Guide F Energy Efficiency in buildings
This revised edition has been brought up to date in light of current UK legislation, specifically Part L of the Building Regulations, and covers the energy requirements committed by both the design and the energy costs in use.
Operational ratings for Display Energy Certificates (TM47)
Display Energy Certificates are intended to raise public awareness of energy use and provide additional motivation to the public sector to improve the energy performance of their buildings. This publication is the comprehensive reference on DECs, including calculating operational ratings and producing Advisory Reports. Useful notes for building managers and owners are also included.
