This paper provides an analysis of the appliance ownership and use factors contributing to high electrical energy demand in UK homes. The data were collected during a large-scale, city-wide survey, carried out in Leicester, ...
The gap between simulated and measured energy performance: A case study across six identical new-build flats in the UK
Monitoring of completed buildings often identifies significant gaps between the predicted and actual energy use of buildings. This is referred to as the ‘energy performance gap’. To date, most research on the energy ...
The building energy performance gap: Up close and personal
Measurements of completed projects confirm significant gaps between the predicted and actual energy performance of buildings. This is due to: actual occupant behaviour; weather conditions; workmanship/installation errors; ...
