What they say
Sarah Cary - British Land: Post occupancy evaluations and energy in use has moved from experts to everyone. CarbonBuzz could provide the framework for this exercise.
Rory Walsh-Low Carbon Workplace Fund: CarbonBuzz provides a reliable platform to exchange information about predicted vs real energy use - the link between design and operational energy consumption is widely misunderstood.
Emma Bushell - Islington Council: As part of Islington Council's Green Performance Plan CarbonBuzz can help demonstrate achievements in minimising energy consumption.
Keith Snook - BRE: CarbonBuzz can make a useful contribution to policy by providing a repository of real energy use evidence for benchmarking.
Phil Jones - CIBSE Benchmarking Group: The incorporation of high resolution datasets makes CarbonBuzz a robust tool.
Alasdair Donn - Willmott Dixon: CarbonBuzz provides added value above DECs through collecting detailed information on individual buildings.
Ann Bodkin - Partnership for Schools: CarbonBuzz can help users understand the risks associated with unregulated energy use.
Simon Sturgis - Sturgis Associates: CarbonBuzz can provide data in response to users' evolving requirements; in the future this focus may move from design vs. actual to operational data vs. whole life.
Will Ray - Rockwool: CarbonBuzz provides a great opportunity to make data more accessible online and will support our work to bridge the performance gap between expectations and outcomes.
