The Building Simulation Group (BSG) of the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE), supports and encourages the application of advanced building simulation tools for building and system design. It has an aim to drive best practices in building simulation primarily through organizing events, was previously heavily involved in the AM11 publication and is currently examining opportunities for certification in this field. In 2012 the Group initiated an annual prize open to postgraduate students from UK and overseas universities who undertake a research project at Master’s level or equivalent which included a major element involving the application of building simulation tools in their research. In 2018 the prize event format has been changed to focus upon the use of building simulation in industry projects in order to encourage high end usage, R&D and innovation in project-applied building simulation techniques.
