The RIBA launches CarbonBuzz

The UK's Royal Institute of British Architects will be launching CarbonBuzz on 5 November 2008, an online platform designed to enable practices to monitor their projects’ energy usage. Set up in collaboration with the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE), the project aims to set the framework for future benchmarking by providing a means to reduce the discrepancy between design and operational energy consumption, a key concern for the industry. The project will create a sector by sector monitor of UK buildings' energy use and provide a RIBA and CIBSE recognised framework for 'Carbon-Conscious' practices. Participating practices will be afforded easy access to CIBSE CO2 emission benchmarks during design and will be able to compare results with actual energy consumption figures once a building is in use. UK designers and engineers can contribute to, manage and share forecast and actual energy use of their projects anonymously.
