Following an EU Directive most buildings in Europe and the UK must have their energy use assessed using the National Calculation Method. The only practicable way at present is by the use of BRE's iSBEM software. The software is downloadable from BRE's site, but requires Win2000 and either Access2000 or the Access runtime minimal install for operation.
The software at present is free and unlikely to change radically within the foreseeable future. For all practicable purposes it is a mandatory requirement for the provision of some services within the construction industry. The application comes complete with a database of information on walls, roofs, floors, windows etc.
