Extending the UK's green deal with the consideration of occupant behaviour
MetadataShow full item record
This paper introduces a study, which extends the current UK’s Green Deal through a consideration of modifying occupant behaviour in buildings to save building energy consumption. A case study was carried out in a typical mid-terraced residential building located in the Southwest of the UK. In the study, dynamic building performance simulation was used to predict the energy saving potential of various behaviour change options so as to help occupants use the building more energy efficiently. Feedback from building occupants reveals that this approach is helpful in reducing energy demand in a real building application, but also points out the need for future work.
