CIBSE Certified Low Carbon Consultants

Registrants on the CIBSE Low Carbon Consultants register have been certified by CIBSE to be competent to minimise energy use and carbon emissions from buildings both in design and operation.  The additional two day training programme has enabled them to go beyond the current legal minima in improving the energy performance of both new and existing buildings.  It is not a requirement for CIBSE certified Low Carbon Consultants to be members of CIBSE.
