Simplified building Energy Modelling (SBEM)

SBEM is a software tool developed by BRE that provides an analysis of a building’s energy consumption.

SBEM is used for non domestic buildings in support of the National Calculation Methodology (NCM) and the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD).

The tool helps to determine CO2 emission rates for new buildings in compliance with Part L of the Building Regulations (England and Wales) and equivalent Regulations in Scotland, Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland and Jersey. It is also used to generate Energy Performance Certificates for non-domestic buildings in construction, for sale or let.

SBEM was developed by BRE for the Department for Communities and Local Government. The latest version of the SBEM tool and its accompanying user interface, iSBEM, can be downloaded free of charge from the dedicated National Calculation Method website at

BRE Scotland Training has unrivalled experience in the delivery of SBEM training, leading on to ACD and or EPC Scheme membership and the authority to issue the relevant Certificate in Scotland.
