FSAP Software is the industry's most advanced SAP software tool to help energy assessors complete SAP assessments for new build properties. Developed in-house, our industry approved software supports assessors to comply with the Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP). SAP is the UK Government's methodology for calculating the energy performance of domestic dwellings. The calculation is based on the energy balance, taking into account a range of factors that contribute to energy efficiency, including thermal insulation, ventilation, solar gains and renewable energy technologies. The resulting energy performance calculation is independent of factors related to the individual characteristics of the household occupying the dwelling when the rating is calculated (such as household size, electrical appliance efficiency and heating patterns).
Members can now access the new Beta version of our FSAP 10 software, due for full release in late 2020 to early 2021. This software represents an interpretation of the current draft specification of SAP 10.1 released by BRE. The FSAP 10 Beta is not approved by BRE and Stroma Certification Ltd accept no liability for the use of calculation results or outputs derived from this calculation engine. The FSAP 10 Beta includes changes to:
The FSAP 10 Beta will continue to be updated in the run up to the full release of the software.
Available on: Desktop PC
The SAP methodology compares and assesses the energy and environmental performance of dwellings, providing reliable and accurate assessments of domestic energy performance. SAP supports the Government's energy and environmental policies, as well as compliance with the Energy Performance of Building Regulations (EPBR). The indicators of energy performance are Fabric Energy Efficiency (FEE), energy consumption per unit floor area, an energy cost rating (i.e. the SAP rating), an Environmental Impact rating based on CO2 emissions and a Dwelling Emission Rate (DER). The SAP rating is based upon energy costs associated with space and water heating, ventilation and lighting, less cost savings from renewable energy technologies.
