SBEM calculations come in two stages: a ‘design stage’ SBEM report and an ‘as built’ SBEM report. The primary purpose of these calculations is to produce the EPC.
SBEMs are designed to assess and compare energy in non-residential buildings. Nearly all new non-domestic buildings require an SBEM prior to construction and it is normally a requirement of Building Control at this early stage.
SBEM is a computer programme that provides an analysis of a building’s energy consumption, including monthly energy use and carbon emissions. This was developed for the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) to partially satisfy the requirements of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD).
