Carbon Buzz explained

  • Comment
The RIBA’s CarbonBuzz tool catalogues anonymous data from real buildings, making it easier for architects to understand building energy use statistics.

If architects want to lessen the impact of construction on climate change they need to avoid glazing over when confronted with predicted energy use forecasts and meter readings from completed buildings.

CarbonBuzz, a new RIBA-led initiative, makes it easier for architects to understand and interpret these figures by presenting data from real projects, albeit anonymously.
