Simulation Experiments with Birmingham Zero Carbon House and Optimisation in the Context of Climate Change

Ljubomir Jankovic and Halla Huws

Abstract: The Birmingham Zero Carbon House is a Victorian house that has achieved carbon negative performance through retrofit. The house has been extensively simulated in parallel with detailed instrumental monitoring. A dynamic simulation model of the house was first calibrated using measured performance data. The performance of the house was subsequently studied through dynamic simulation in the current and future weather years. Robustness of the building thermal behaviour to climate change was thus analysed and measures for adaptation to climate change were investigated.
