SAP Energy Adjustment Tool

This tool can be used to generate an estimate of Energy Use Intensity (EUI) using the default Building Regulations modelling software, SAP. It should be used for planning compliance only, where requested by a Local Planning Authority.

SAP is a simplified planning tool and should not be used for accurate energy calculations and building design. The methodology behind this calculation is based on technical evidence (Option 3) developed in support of Cornwall Council’s Climate Emergency DPD. Details of this methodology can be found here.
