Energy Design Advice Service (EDAS) Another useful tool in assessing the likely energy performance of a building at the design stage is EDAS, an independent energy auditing scheme sponsored by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI). The EDAS consultation is concerned primarily with energy performance. In particular it provides a detailed prediction of expected energy loads per square metre and likely savings in the volume of carbon dioxide (CO2) emitted. Also, since EDAS can provide several consultations during the different stages of the design process, it offers a finer level of energy modelling than under BREEAM’s broad-brush approach.
