Archive and Repository

CIBSE Knowledge Archive & Repository

CIBSE intends to create a dedicated archive of publications and other knowledge items that are no longer current but which may have value to our membership and, hopefully, to the wider industry. Many of these may be difficult or impossible to locate or obtain elsewhere.

Over time, this CIBSE Archive & Repository will include old and withdrawn versions of CIBSE's own titles alongside other material that CIBSE is allowed to, or has express permission to, include.

A large number initially come from the Energy EfficIency Best Practice Programme (EEBPP) and includes many well referenced and highly regarded titles within the series produced under this programme. These were published under Crown copyright, and are made available here as they contain public sector information licensed under the Open Government Licence v2.0.

Those currently included are accessible via the webpages as below:

Future development

Suggestions from CIBSE members over this and further content would be welcomed via the comments box at the bottom of this page. Conversely any user of this resource can make suggestions direct to Eileen Bell by email to

At this initial phase of the creation of this archive, these items will simply be listed on this page, and each item can be downloaded by clicking on the link. We intend to better integrate this archive content into the CIBSE Knowledge Portal in due course. 

Note: Users of this information must ensure that it is and remains suitable for the purposes to which it is being put.


CIBSE is grateful to a number of CIBSE Members for their contributions to this archive but with special thanks in particular to Colin Ashford, Phil Jones and Ellen Salazar.
