    • Opening Black BoxesThe need for greater transparency and accuracy
      Dr Keith Baker
      Centre for Energy and the Built Environment
      Glasgow Caledonian University
    • Overview
      The problem of black boxes
      For and against greater transparency
      Accuracy and building energy modelling
      Enabling greater accuracy
      Final thoughts
    • ?
      Data
      CO2 / CO2e
      The Problem
    • ?
      Conversion factors
      Calculations
      Assumptions
      Boundaries
      ?
      Data
      CO2 / CO2e
      The Problem
    • Against Transparency
      Intellectual Property Rights
      Profit and competitive advantage
      Expediency
      Lack of an independent, impartial, expert scrutiny body
      Problem of non-expert scrutiny (e.g. by climate change deniers)
    • For Transparency
      How valuable is that IPR anyway?
      ‘Transparent’ does not have to mean ‘free’
      Whose advantage?
      How expedient?
      Need for greater exposure to peer review – stakeholder and public confidence in results
      Greater transparency means results are less open to questions / claims of greenwashing
    • Positive Examples
      Free:
      Inventory of Carbon and Energy, University of Bath
      Climate Challenge Fund Route Maps, Footprint Consulting
      Low cost:
      REAP / REAP Petite, Stockholm Environment Institute
      Many building energy models
    • Heating
      Lighting
      Ventilation
      Appliances
      etc
      Energy
      CO2 / CO2e
      Accuracy and Building Energy Modelling
    • But then...
      Energy
      CO2 / CO2e?
    • Enabling Accuracy
      Is there really a standard household any more?
      Is it time to ditch the zone 1 / zone 2 assumption?
      What are the implications for policy making?
      How accurately can we model the impact of behaviour, and behavioural interventions?
      What can be learnt from buildings that can be applied elsewhere?
    • Final Thoughts
      Two inter-connected problems
      Can greater transparency lead to greater accuracy?
      How can our knowledge of building energy modelling inform carbon accounting in general?
      How accurate can we be? And how accurate do we need to be?
    • The Agriculture Workshop
      Date: Tues 17th June
      Time: 10:00 - 1:00 (includes lunch) – plus an afternoon session for those able to stay
