The IES BER Assessor training allows for the easy creation of non-domestic Building Energy Ratings (BERs), as well as compliance with Part L. It offers a unique 3D graphical interface to the SBEMie engine which has been adapted within the framework of NZEB for use in the Republic of Ireland. This training course will teach participants how this tool can be fully employed.

  • Learn how to use this new tool to prepare building and system data and to perform Part L (Republic of Ireland) compliance checks for non-dwellings using the NZEB method.
  • Know how to generate a Building Energy Rating (BER) for the building using the NZEB method.
