Posted By: jamesingram...the kwh/m2/year set at say presumed int. temp. of 20 deg. C would give a possible average expected energy use?How about a more green lefty view, should we be looking a kWh/m2/year/person(building user/occupant)

Posted By: jamesingramWhat's that Viz ?
Posted By: tonyI tried and got rejected!
Posted By: jamesingram"Also beware with kWh/m2/year as units as some places use this as a measure of primary energy (eg the amount of energy in the coal used to fire the powerstation) and other places use it to measure energy delivered in the house. "Yes needs to be primary energy to make any sense as a energy efficiency measurePh , AECB, retrofit for a future , use primary energy

Posted By: DamonHDThe reader comments make me want to cry: presumbably competant adults day-to-day but apparently ignorant, idiots, paid shills, sociopathic trolls, people so narrow-minded that they could see through a keyhole with both eyes at once, or some combination. Or is that the columnists, I can never remember?
