BRE software for Green Deal assessments

14 May 13 BRE, the building research establishment, has published the first modules of a suite of software to help domestic energy assessors (DEA) and green deal advisors (GDA).

Core of the software is made up of three modules, which have been developed in response to calls for a more efficient and connected way to assess energy and also better understand green deal potential.

One of the modules is a pre-assessment tool that provides a new method for conducting green deal pre-assessment.

Users are guided via instructions through a brief set of questions to capture and understand Green Deal potential. Assessors can then use the information to help identify the homes with the best opportunities for success.

The other two elements deal with existing dwellings’ energy performance certificates (EPCs) and occupancy assessment (OA) and will expand BRE Global’s automation support for their DEA and GDA members.

The suite of software will also be expanded in June to include an ECO calculator module and GDA iPad app.
