Software to deliver fully costed EPC retrofit improvement strategies in minutes
Published by arbnco

Overview

Deliver fully costed EPC retrofit improvement strategies in minutes by energy model simulation
Developed by arbnco and specifically designed for MEES (Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards) compliance, arbn consult provides fully costed retrofit strategies for improving energy performance in individual commercial buildings.
By uploading the INP/XML file from an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC), the arbn consult software identifies what retrofit measures to implement to improve the EPC rating and the cost of these measures including discounted payback periods, and demonstrates the ability of each measure to achieve MEES 7-year payback rules.
Taking the data file behind any commercial EPC, the software can generate a fully costed improvement report, detailing carbon, cost and energy savings potential and impact on the resulting energy rating.

Benefits

Ability to run multiple simulations with combinations of improvement measures
The software will run multiple simulations with combinations of improvement measures in order to provide four strategies to improve the energy consumption in the building. These strategies are based around the EPC rating, which are directly related with the expected energy costs of the premises and are predicated upon being required for F and G rated buildings.
Re-run historical SBEM EPC models through the latest version of SBEM
arbn consult has the ability to re-run historical SBEM (Simplified Building Energy Model) EPC models through the latest version of SBEM, to identify changes in EPC rating. It alerts a potential transition to 'MEES At Risk.'
Easier reporting
Allows assessors to generate bespoke, professional and user friendly investment grade MEES and Section 63 reports in minutes.
