BEST Application and Effectiveness

BEST is an effective tool to evaluate CO2 emission of building and to identify plans to reduce the CO2 emission. It enables us to assess Life Cycle Management (LCM) for any kind of building. The LCM confirms effects of utilizing energy efficient equipments, developing new equipments, changing operational schedules (change operation hours, daylight saving operation and Cool Biz etc.), increasing supply-side energy efficiency and altering the type of energy source. Beyond a design tool for architects and building system designers, BEST is used as a tool to deliver building information as well as to assess building operation and life cycle.
