Advising on energy strategy in Bristol

We’ve recently provided a report for a large UK house builder. The report assesses the performance of different energy reduction strategies for a large residential development in Bristol.

The development was asked by the local council to achieve compliance with Part L of Building Regulations, Code for Sustainable Homes Level 3, and a 20% reduction in the total Carbon emission rate.

We assessed the site under several specifications. The specifications range from using a large amount of solar photovoltaics with a basic build specification designed to achieve compliance, to highly insulated fabric specification with minimal renewables or low Carbon technologies.

The report provides the developer with a clear overview of each strategy's total Carbon emission rate. It is being used by the developer to understand which approach is the most efficient, suitable and cost-effective. We are providing the client with an additional report, detailing the site’s Carbon emission rate in a more detailed and formal manner as evidence to support the planning application.
