Building performance and renewable energy technology evaluation
At the Centre for Infrastructure Management, we can monitor and evaluate the in-service performance of buildings incorporating new energy efficient technologies such as photo-voltaic, solar thermal hot water and ground source heat pumps. We also undertake co-heating tests to determine the heat loss coefficient for houses.
Recent projects include
• Building Performance Evaluation of Cross Lane, Barnsley, for InnovateUK, where the energy efficiency of new build homes was determined.
• Building Performance Evaluation of Bermondsey Square Development, London, where the energy efficiency of a district heating system was determined for a hotel and an office block.
• Examining the effectiveness of Rotherham’s Henley rise Eco-Homes development. The ESRC-funded study determined how much energy the homes are saving, and how the attitudes and behavior of the residents have been affected.
This service can help
• achieve energy efficiency targets;
• reduce CO2 emissions.
