ABCB Protocol for Building Energy Analysis Software
Energy analysis software has been used for many years by designers, energy auditors and energy assessors to assess the energy consumption of a building. Software packages vary considerably in scope, complexity and application and therefore can deliver a wide range of results.
To ensure that software used to demonstrate compliance with the NCC energy efficiency measures is of an appropriate standard; this Protocol defines minimum requirements for software and training of its users. It also provides a process for demonstrating the acceptability of new software and revisions to existing software.
