Dwelling temperatures and comfort during the August 2003 heat wave
More frequent hot summers in the UK under climate change could lead to increased discomfort in dwellings, but there is little published field data on internal summer temperatures. Temperatures wereExpand

Modelling UK domestic energy and carbon emissions: an agent-based approach
As the debate on policy responses to climate change gathers pace, there has been an increasing focus on tools to model national scale energy use and emission characteristics of UK dwellings. ThisExpand

Adaptive Comfort Degree-Days: A metric to compare adaptive comfort standards and estimate changes in
TLDR
This paper introduces the concept of the Adaptive Comfort Degree-Day, a temperature difference/time composite metric, as a means of comparing energy savings fromadaptive Comfort Model standards by quantifying the extent to which the temperature limits of the thermal comfort zone of the Predicted Mean Vote Model can be broadened.

'just enough' sensing to ENLITEN: a preliminary demonstration of sensing strategy for the 'energy literacy through an intelligent home energy advisor' (ENLITEN) project
TLDR
We are developing a whole building energy model that, uniquely, integrates (i) a thermal model, (ii) a model of occupants' habits and requirements and (iii) a disaggregated model of energy use in the dwelling. Expand
