Inkling have played a pivotal role in creating the LETI Operational Modelling Guide that was published this week. The guide is free to download from the LETI website here: https://www.leti.uk/omg
I (Susie) was a lead author (together with Tom Gwilliam from Etude) and both Claire and Marcus were involved with the workstream and helped with review and proof reading. The guide explores how a building’s meter readings can be estimated at design stages, and how this understanding can be used to
inform and improve designs and in-use performance – providing more confidence that operational energy targets can be achieved.
Here’s my quote from the press release:
“I am very proud of this guide. Energy performance modelling is finally becoming recognised as the powerful tool that it is, and it is time for modellers to step up, flex their skills and take credit for their pivotal role in high performance building design. I hope this guide will raise wider awareness and engagement with performance modelling and that we’ll see these tools and skills used much more widely in future.”Susie Diamond – Inkling – Workstream co-lead and editor of the LETI Operational Modelling guide
We hope this new guidance will encourage more engagement with and by modellers and be a useful resource for all design teams as we work our way (with ever more urgency) towards net zero.
