Predicted Savings of EDGE Certification
Less Embodied Energy in Materials
Reflective paint/tiles for the roof, external shading devices, and energy-saving lighting in internal and external spaces.
Dual-flush water closets and low-flow showerheads and faucets for kitchen sinks and washbasins.
In-situ reinforced concrete slab for the floor and roof construction, honeycomb clay blocks with plaster for internal and external walls, and laminated wooden flooring.
*Part of the energy efficiency percentage may be associated with virtual energy for comfort depending on the presence of heating and cooling systems. Note that virtual energy does not contribute savings to utility bills.
