This category recognises buildings which have lower operational energy consumption and carbon emissions.
Issues in this section assess the assessed energy efficiency of the asset. This includes the energy efficiency
of the building fabric, the energy efficiency of installed services systems, installed renewable energy
generation capacity and standard equipment associated with the use of the building, for example, office
equipment. However, energy uses associated with specialist processes and equipment loads are excluded.
The operational energy performance implicitly takes account of how well energy consumption is managed
within the building. Improvements in the operational energy performance of the asset are also recognised in
