Simulating Energy Models

Simply and quickly upload the INP file from your Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) model and let the arbn consult simulation engine deliver automated, fully costed EPC retrofit improvement strategies in minutes.

Our software identifies what retrofit measures to implement to improve the EPC rating, the cost of these measures including discounted payback periods and demonstrates the ability of each measure to achieve MEES 7 year payback rules.

Benefits

MEES Risk Management

arbn consult has the ability to re-run historical SBEM EPC models through the latest version of SBEM to identify changes in EPC rating and alerts a potential transition to ‘MEES At Risk.’

Scale Up and Improve Your Business Offering

Using arbn consult you can deliver personalised professional looking fully costed MEES and Section 63 reports in minutes.

 

Easier reporting

 

Generate bespoke, professional and user-friendly investment grade/MEES and Section 63 reports in minutes. Export to word or PDF giving the ability to white label and enhance your current reporting process – it couldn’t be more simple.

Increase your revenues

Upload yours or your customers’ INP files from any EPC database to arbn consult to identify at scale which EPC ratings have dropped to at ‘MEES Risk’ when run through the latest version of SBEM. Report back to your client on new ‘MEES At Risk’ buildings statistics – run these through arbn consult to generate fully costed retrofit reports for your clients.

Commercial Real Estate Transactions

If your clients are looking to transact on a building for either acquisition or disposal let arbn consult tell you the potential risk that MEES will have on the value of the building. Our software solution identifies retrofit measures and costs for repositioning a building’s EPC rating out of MEES risk – helping you to help your clients identify and mitigate MEES risk and negotiate on asking price.

No licence fee here – just pay as you go, we charge a one off fee for 12 months access to unlimited model simulations. We realise that you need flexibility and to keep your margins so what are you waiting for? If you need to make a change to an EPC Energy Model, no problem, as long as it’s the same UPRN on the EPC feel free to re-run that model as many time as you like within your 12 month upload period.

Additional features

Section 63 addition to platform

Section 63 has been incorporated into arbn consult as a stand-alone report, from an uploaded section 63 advisors INP file which will highlight prescriptive measures and possible means of meeting both energy and carbon dioxide targets required by the legislation. This indicative costing and comparison of strategies will match the asset energy reports already produced by arbnco for commercial buildings to meet MEES in England and Wales.

Simplified Building Energy Model Viewer

Our simplified building energy model viewer allows an INP file from an assessor to be uploaded onto arbn consult.

The viewer facilitates detailed interrogation of simplified building energy models. Assessor inputs and assumptions can be checked for compliance against current EPC conventions and potential changes to the building since originally modelled. The viewer affords a clear and easy to interpret comparison of conditioning system efficiency assumptions against SBEM default settings and zone by zone error checking.

The viewer provides a unique facility to demonstrate to building occupiers and managers target areas for energy saving and affords the user the ability to expedite an easy to interpret, picture of a building including, the ratio of each zone to the overall area, basic construction and activity in each zone.

ESOS Reporting tool

New from arbnco is the function to generate an ESOS report directly from your EPC data! The platform can now accept the actual energy consumption of a building or a group of properties, and use this information to enhance the saving measures calculated for the company. Each improvement measure is scaled in proportion to the actual consumption for the building, making a much more accurate and realistic assessment of energy saving opportunities.
The platform then generates a template for an ESOS Assessor to use to report on the company, already populated with the reference year of energy data, saving measures for the organization, and detailed saving measures at each relevant property.

Testimonials

Without arbn consult, I would not have been able to find the 7-year saving; there would have been no way to exempt high cost elements. My clients were impressed with the process I formed using arbn consult. It is now a standard operating procedure when a commercial property scores an F or G.

My clients have renewed (installed) all cost effective measures. Other measures that did not payback more than the 7-year saving have been exempted and registered as an exemption.

I would and I have recommended this software to other EPC Assessors.

NRG assessments

If you are looking for the definitive MEES compliant software, or just energy performance improvement ROI data, then look no further. The arbn consult solution presents clear, detailed and concise output straight from SBEM input data. Clients are increasingly aware of the imminent MEES legislation and this is an ‘EPD add-on’ that answers all their questions at a competitive price. Five stars from me!
