Dynamic Building Simulation
New low carbon technologies and materials are constantly being developed. Many of these technologies and materials are being specified in new projects but the results have been mixed. In some cases the technology has functioned correctly but has required a high level of maintenance, in others buildings with low carbon footprints have not operated at suitable comfort levels for the occupants. In a few cases unproven technologies and materials have been installed that have not functioned as expected.
In order to prevent these circumstances occurring Green Energy Partners can carry out a dynamic building simulation to determine whether a building will perform as intended. This will identify any likely problems with the building such as overheating or lack of daylight and can also identify measures for improving its energy performance rating including optimising passive design, ventilation and daylight factors etc.
