Zero Energy/Carbon Building Reduced Algorithm
Democratising the tools for low energy and low carbon building design.
Decisions taken in the early design stages of a project dramatically influence its low energy and low carbon performance. Most low energy and low carbon design tools are complex for non-specialists to use, due to the large number of inputs needed and a general lack of guidance throughout the process. The Zero Energy/Carbon Building Reduced Algorithm tool helps non-specialists get to an energy and carbon performance estimate on a draft design in less than an hour.
