The UK government has set out an ambitious plan for all new homes to be zero carbon by 2016.

This activity, supported by the National Measurement Office, will focus on energy efficient buildings in specific areas.

This will support the BPE community in delivering more accurate and reliable data on whole building performance and building materials, while helping to bridge the gap between design and as-constructed performance.

Campaign Objectives

  • Highlight the importance of good measurement practice
  • Understand the measurement challenges/issues in BPE
  • Highlight what measurement tools, processes and methods are available for BPE
  • Gain insight into what is needed to further improve measurement best practice/ capability used in BPE
