To provide greater flexibility, there is an alternative route for meeting the minimum Excellent standard within Ene 01. Where four credits for ‘Prediction of operational energy consumption’ are achieved, the minimum standard for Excellent in Ene 01 can be deemed to be met, provided certain conditions have been met.
See section 4.1 of Guidance Note GN32, version 1.1 for further details.
Version 3.0 of the technical manual refers to ‘4 credits’ for both Excellent and Outstanding. This will be corrected in the next reissue of the manual, so that it is clear that for Simple Buildings the requirement is achieving the Prediction criteria, not achieving four credits.
This was applied to version 3.0 of the technical manual, but can be applied in all issues of the UK NC2018 scheme.
