OR Toolkit


OR Toolkit (Operational Rating Toolkit) is a third party software developed by SystemsLink to enable energy assessors to produce Display Energy Certificates (DECs) and Advisory Reports (ARs). OR Toolkit helps Public Building Assessors to provide clear advice on energy savings measures for public buildings. SystemsLink have provided OR Toolkit for use by members of Stroma Certification's DEC Certification scheme for Public Building Assessors.

DECs raise public awareness of energy use in public buildings, rating the building from A-G, where A is very efficient. The Operational Rating (OR) for a DEC is based on the actual amount of metered energy use over a period of 12 months, compared to a hypothetical building with benchmarked performance. DECs must be lodged, by an accredited energy assessor and are identified by a unique reference number, a lodged DEC becomes legal when the accompanying AR has been lodged. OR Toolkit enables the energy assessor to complete this process.
