energy assessment / audit

CEN/CENELEC Joint Working Group 1, chaired by Vilnis Vesma (Vilnis@Vesma.com) has been convened to draft a European Standard on energy audits. The JWG is starting with a state-of-the-art study which seeks to draw on the experience of energy auditing in as many member states as possible. An initial set of questions has been posted for public response at http://www.socialtext.net/energy_audit/?energy_audit_standard.

BER registered Assessors have proven competence to undertake and provide Building Energy Ratings (BERs) and accompanying Advisory Reports to a consistently high standard.   In order to become a BER registered assessor it is necessary to pass the BER Assessor exam.  SEAI regularly updates the domestic and non-domestic BER Examinations to reflect the current methodology and guidelines. Registered BER assessors must pass the relevant examination every two years to maintain their registration.

Buildings (both domestic and non-domestic) in EU are responsible for approximately 40% of the primary energy use. This makes buildings the largest 'energy-using-sector' in the Union. From the energy point of view, one can reduce consumption: by using building products that are sustainable (e.g. have little embodied energy), by designing and constructing buildings that use as little energy as possible with respect to heating, cooling, ventilation, etc. and by maintaining and operating buildings without wasting energy.
