Using data to help inform future building design
Compass On-line Energy Reporting Tool
SBC is pleased to manage and support the on-line energy reporting tool for new construction projects: COMPASS, which provides a streamlined energy benchmarking and reporting tool for new construction projects at the design stage.
By providing market-wide benchmarking analytics, this tool will enhance the quality of modelled energy performance, improve the energy literacy of the design community, improve conservation program delivery, and ultimately reduce energy use and greenhouse gas emissions from every proposed building development in Ontario.
Compass automatically extracts up to 400 building and performance characteristics from each project that is uploaded. Users can use this data to generate draft program submission documents, to check models against a database of like-buildings, or just to explore the proposed building stock of Ontario.
