CarbonBuzz, the online energy benchmarking website from RIBA and CIBSE, is now live.

The website was launched at an event held last week at The Building Centre in London, presented by RIBA president Sunand Prasad, chair of RIBA Sustainable Futures Bill Gething, Hywel Davies of CIBSE, and Bill Bordass of the Usable Buildings Trust.

The CarbonBuzz site will act as an online database of buildings’ energy and emissions performance, before and after completion that will compare predicted and actual performance, as well as acting as a sector-by-sector benchmark.

A further series of workshops for engineers and architects wishing to upload their projects’ details onto the site is currently underway at the Building Centre, ending 12 November 2008.
