CarbonBuzz Launch


An online platform called CarbonBuzz (run by RIBA and CIBSE) have invited UK designers and engineers to contribute to, manage and share forecast and actual energy use of their projects anonymously. The project will create a sector-by-sector monitor of UK buildings' energy use and provide a recognised framework for 'Carbon-Conscious' practice. This cross-disciplinary effort is funded initially by UrbanBuzz and after an extended pilot at the RIBA this October, it will be launched on 5 November 2008 at The Building Centre.

The launch will be presented by Sunand Prasad (RIBA President), Bill Gething (Chair of RIBA Sustainable Futures), Hywel Davies (CIBSE Technical Director) and Bill Bordass (Research Director of the Usable Buildings Trust).
