Hi CLF community,
just wanted to let you know that CIBSE just released a new technical memorandum: CIBSE TM65 Embodied carbon in building services: A calculation methodology. This calculation methodology provides an opportunity to create conservative embodied carbon baseline for MEP when no further information is available (meaning EPDs) to be able to start doing research studies in a consistent way while waiting EPDs to become mainstream. At the moment, it is quite UK/Europe centric, but we are planning to add an addendum for each region to set the right local assumptions. A technical committee should be set up by region, if you are expert in Embodied carbon and or MEP and interested by this, please reach out to me!
See link to the TM: CIBSE - Building Services Knowledge - apologies, it is only free for CIBSE members
See article on this: Heart of the matter: calculating embodied carbon using TM65 – CIBSE Journal
Also fyi a full hour webinar on this is scheduled on the 25th of February, see link: https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/8454027670412156684?source=CIBSE+Website
