Monitoring and Performance Analysis of a Large Non-domestic Ground Source Heat Pump Installation
Application of GSHP systems to provide heating and cooling for non-domestic buildings is seen as a viable and effective way of reducing carbon emissions and achieving design renewable energy targets. The application of ...
Digitally Engaging and Empowering Employees for Energy Demand Reduction: A New Approach for the Next Generation?
Opinion is divided over whether technical solutions or behavioural change strategies offer the best energy savings potential in buildings. Behaviour change initiatives could have impact given current estimates that 30% of ...
Improved occupancy monitoring in non-domestic buildings
Measuring occupancy can facilitate energy efficiency in non-domestic buildings, when control systems are able to adjust heating and cooling based on demand rather than fixed schedules. The variable “occupancy profile” ...
Acceptance of thermal conditions and energy use of three ventilation strategies with six exhaust configurations for the classroom
The paper describes an experimental study from forty-eight subjects about the acceptable thermal conditions under three ventilation strategies with six exhaust configurations, including mixing ventilation (MV), displacement ...
Competing priorities: Lessons in engaging students to achieve energy savings in universities.
(International Journal of Sustainability in Higher Education, 2018-10)
This paper presents findings from an EU funded international student-led energy saving competition (SAVES) on a scale previously unseen. There are multiple accounts of short-term projects and energy saving competitions ...
