The building has an excellent A3 BER Rating.
The Building Energy Rating (BER) is an indication of the energy performance of office buildings in Ireland.
It covers energy use for space heating, water heating, ventilation, air conditioning and lighting calculated on the basis of standard occupancy.
It is expressed as primary energy use per unit floor area per year (kWh/m2/yr).
15 Barrow Street is 117 kWh/m2/yr 0.34 equating to A3 BER Rating on the BER Scale A-G.
A-rated Offices are the most energy efficient and will tend to have the lowest energy bills whereas G-Rated offices have high energy cost in running them annually.
The building has been designed to comply with the interim NZEB performance specification.
Nearly Zero Energy Building means a building that has a very high energy performance. The nearly zero or very low amount of energy required should be covered to a very significant extent by energy from renewable sources or the overall energy performance of the building should be equivalent to the performance of the building as if the renewable energy ratio has been achieved.
The building will have a Carbon Performance Coefficient (CPC) less than the Maximum Permitted CPC (MPCPC) of 1.15. The building, therefore, achieves the NZEB performance specification for energy and carbon dioxide emissions.
