BRITA in PuBs Information Tool (BIT)

The BRITA in PuBs Internet Information Tool is an electronic database which offers many different types of information for decision makers at public retrofit projects.

The tool presents in a clearly structured way all demonstration buildings from the project plus more than 30 educational case study buildings from a just finished IEA project (IEA ECBCS Annex 36 “Retrofitting of Educational Buildings”). In a matrix the buildings are opposed to different retrofit strategies starting with the building envelope, over heating and ventilation
systems, solar control and cooling strategies, lighting systems to renewables and management methods.

The retrofit technologies and the case studies are described in detail in so-called viewers. For both the case studies and the retrofit measures, more detailed information is offered as pdf-downloads including the final reports of the demonstration buildings and the retrofit design guidelines.

An additional feature of the information tool is the performance rating tool. Here the user can visually compare the electricity, heating and water consumption of a specific (own) building with the national average for 19 different building types.

The BRITA in PuBs Information Tool is now available in the final version and includes the following parts:
• case study viewer
• retrofit measure viewer
• performance rating tool
• background information
• list of national contact points
