A Discussion on the Occupancy-related Indoor Environment and Electricity Use in a UK Residential Building

Jia Cui, Steve Goodhew, Alan Fewkes

Abstract: Post-occupancy modelling forms a critical part in a doctoral research project, which aims to monitor and assess the occupancy-related energy use and indoor environment in a sample of UK domestic buildings. This paper attempts to investigate the extraction of occupancy patterns using a structural modelling approach. The data samples are collected using a sensor-based data acquisition system that is designed for the monitoring project site. Required future work for the sensor-based modelling aspect of the research is identified at the end of the paper.
