We are exploring the impact energy efficiency measures can have on the flexibility and resilience of the energy system. 

As part of the CREDS Buildings theme we are “Exploring the impact energy efficiency measures can have on the flexibility and resilience of the energy system.”

As part of this we have been examining the impact that smart meters may have in improving the performance in operation of energy efficient technologies. In particular, we have been looking at novel ways of measuring the in-use thermal performance of buildings. Building on this work, the CREDS building physics team led by Cliff Elwell, have been working with BEIS, other academics and commercial organisations to develop and test Smart Meter Enabled Thermal Efficiency Rating (SMETER) methods. The results of this work were recently presented at a workshop hosted by BEIS, UCL, Loughborough and Leeds Beckett Universities.

Copies of the results and presentations at the workshop can be accessed on the UCL website.
