IBPSA – International Building Performance Simulation Association Conference

Published: 13 August 2020

Giorgio Cucca, Domestic Energy Modeller at Energy Systems Catapult, is speaking at the International Building Performance Simulation Association Conference.

The International Building Performance Simulation Association is a non-profit international society of building performance simulation researchers, developers and practitioners, dedicated to improving the built environment.

The conference will set out, debate and address the challenges that the Building Simulation and Optimization community is currently facing., exploring key topics including:

  • Urban building energy modelling
  • Energy flexibility
  • Data-driven modelling
  • Occupant behaviour
  • Uncertainty Modelling
  • Building Systems Simulation
  • Advanced Modelling Techniques

Giorgio is presenting a conference paper on the Catapult’s Home Energy Dynamics tool in a session entitled: ‘Building Simulation and Optimization’, drawing on results of a study modelling seven homes with the Home Energy Dynamics tool-kit, as part of a collaboration between the Catapult, a social housing provider, a local authority and a charity.

The Catapult has developed Home Energy Dynamics (HED), a detailed dynamic domestic modelling simulation tool to identify feasible combinations of improvements to a building’s fabric, its heating system and controls, to reduce emissions and running costs and increase comfort.
