Enabling urban-scale energy modelling: a new spatial approach
(Taylor & Francis, 2013)
Urban-scale energy modelling provides an ideal tool for studying non-domestic energy consumption and emissions reduction at the community level. In principle, an approach based on the characteristics of individual commercial ...
Operational Performance and Calibrated Model Analysis of a Large Low-Energy University Building
This paper demonstrates a reproducible methodology for calibrating detailed energy models using hourly measured data that has been applied to evaluation of a large naturally ventilated university building. The aim of the ...
Can persuasion theory help assess a deliberative communication approach?
(Heriot-Watt University and the Academy of Marketing., 2013-09-06)
Energy efficiency is increasingly being seen as a method to help the UK and the EU meet obligations to reduce carbon emissions. Some of the changes needed to the way we consume energy will be achieved through regulation. ...
CASCADE: An Agent Based Framework For Modeling The Dynamics Of Smart Electricity Systems
(Emergent Publications, 2013)
The Complex Adaptive Systems, Cognitive Agents and Distributed Energy (CASCADE) project is developing a framework based on Agent Based Modelling (ABM). The CASCADE Framework can be used both to gain policy and ...
Optimization of dwelling design under current and future climates using evolutionary algorithms in EnergyPlus
Designers of low energy dwellings face many challenges in making best use of space, and providing day lit and pleasant spaces, while minimising heat loss and overall carbon emissions to meet various environmental and ...
Smart grids, local adoption of distributed generation and the feed in tariff policy incentive
Smart Grids are often proposed as a means make the most efficient use of available network infrastructure. To deliver such benefits, Smart Grids rely on the adaptation of various consumption practices on the part of the ...
