In its broadset sense, the word 'magnitude' refers to the size or extent of something.
Energy and Carbon Reporting Framework, Operational Energy and Carbon Information Exchanges for Government Soft Landings, published by the Construction Innovation Hub in October 2021, suggests that in relation to energy: ‘Magnitude factors are those that multiply energy use and the consequent emissions. Typical factors that may raise energy use by orders of magnitude include higher-system operating hours (particularly outside normal operating parameters), higher fabric air-leakage than assumed at design, and poor control that leads to wasteful operation.’
