BCA Building Energy Benchmarking Report (BEBR) 2018

BCA took a momentous first step towards greater transparency in building energy performance information through the release of the annual BCA Building Energy Benchmarking Report (BEBR) in 2014.

With the release of the BEBR annually, BCA hopes to raise awareness among stakeholders of the performance of our buildings, spur positive action at all levels to initiate and implement improvements in building energy efficiency, drive change to energy consumption behaviour and embrace sustainable best practices as we move forward. This will further encourage the growth of green economy through driving demand for green buildings, thereby opening up market opportunities for green solutions and services.

Other than bridging the information gap for the industry, the data is also used to review the standards for BCA’s Green Mark scheme and green building policies. This year, BEBR is streamlined to be e-BEBR which is an online technical report that focuses on statistics and figures drawn from data collected through the Annual Mandatory Submission. This year’s statistics and figures include that of commercial buildings, healthcare facilities, and educational institutions as well as 3 new building types, namely: large-sized buildings of civic, community and cultural institutions, sports and recreation centres, and transport facilities.

BCA Green Mark certification supports green buildings movement by encouraging sustainable buildings in Singapore built environment. Moving forward, BCA encourages Super Low Energy (SLE) Buildings and Healthier Workplaces.
