Predicted Savings of EDGE Certification
Less Embodied Energy in Materials
Reduced window to wall ratio, reflective paint for external walls, natural ventilation with operable windows and no A/C, energy-saving light bulbs in external spaces.
Water-efficient water closets and low-flow showerheads and faucets for kitchen sinks and washbasins.
In-situ reinforced and honeycomb clay blocks with internal & external plaster for internal and external walls and in-situ reinforced concrete slab for the floor and the roof.
*Part of the energy efficiency percentage may be associated with virtual energy for comfort depending on the presence of heating and cooling systems. Note that virtual energy does not contribute savings to utility bills.
