Daikin UK to Help Engineers ‘Mind the Performance Gap’ at Future Thinking Seminars

CPD Seminars - Climate Control Systems - Building Energy Consumption

Daikin UK - Mind The Performance Gap Logo

The fifth series of Daikin UK’s popular Future Thinking CPD-accredited seminars will tackle the challenges faced by building services engineers and engineering consultants in closing the building performance gap.

The Carbon Trust reports that operational energy use in buildings can be up to five times higher than predicted at the design stage – a discrepancy that is known as the ‘building performance gap’. With climate control systems responsible for nearly half of non-residential building energy consumption, more accurate analysis, design, installation and control of these systems can have a significant impact on improving a building’s energy performance.

Daikin UK’s ‘Mind the performance gap’ seminar series, taking place in February and March, will explore why the energy performance of buildings rarely matches design calculations and the positive impact engineers can have in helping to reduce energy consumption, environmental impact and running costs.

Experts from the Carbon Trust and leading built environment modelling software manufacturer IES will explain how engineers can: influence energy performance beyond the design stage; improve the energy performance of buildings through the latest dynamic modelling and analysis; and specify whole-building climate control systems that deliver on their promises.

The seminars will be hosted from 6pm and include buffet, drinks and networking at the following locations:

Date Venue
Wednesday 24th February Marriott Hotel, City Centre, Leeds
Thursday 25th February Blythswood Square Hotel, Glasgow
Wednesday 9th March The Lowry, Manchester
