Behaviour & Modelling

Understanding individual and community perceptions and behaviours to advance adoption of sustainable energy and energy efficiency.

Energy demand and behavioural change

Our research focuses on the monitoring of user’s energy related behaviour to establish patterns, motivations and constraints to inform energy efficiency strategies in all forms of housing and commercial buildings. 

Future provision of energy services

Research into how behaviour, attitudes and personality traits impact upon the provision, marketing and targeting of innovative energy products and services to residential customers. 

Sensing to support independent living

Research incorporating background environmental sensing has been conducted to help detect changes in health conditions. Findings have shown that continuous evaluation of the occupancy behaviour, or thermal conditions can provide insight to informal care networks and provide evidence for additional support.
