Predicted & Actual Occupancy & Energy Use in Low Carbon Buildings

Session 10 Poster 9, CIBSE ASHRAE Technical Symposium, Imperial College, London, UK
18th and 19th April 2012

With increasing fuel prices and corporate and social responsibility pressures for low carbon design, clients will want real guarantees that their buildings perform as expected, making designers more accountable. Future performance predictions will need to be made with confidence, with the results living up to expectations.
