Modelling The Impact Of New UK Future Weather Data On A School Building

Hu Du, Jerry Edge, Chris Underwood

Abstract: To investigate the impact of the new UK Climate Projections on building performance, a primary school building has been simulated with help of a dynamic building performance simulation package (EnergyPlus Version 6) using 4 sets of future test reference year data which were produced by the UK Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers, Exeter University, Manchester University and Northumbria University respectively. Indoor operative temperatures, heating and cooling energy demand of the sample building at three locations (Edinburgh, Manchester and London) under future climate conditions (time slices: 2020s 2030s, 2050s and 2080s; carbon emission scenarios: low, medium and high) were calculated to compare the impacts of four sets of future weather data on building performance.
