Daniel Godoy-Shimizu

Project Researcher

UCL Energy Institute

Daniel is a researcher at the UCL Energy Institute. His work focuses on energy use in the built environment. Recently, he worked on the High-Rise Buildings project, which sought to examine the relationship between energy use and height in the UK building stock using empirical data. Currently, he is a member of the London Buildings Stock Model team who are creating a detailed & disaggregate model of every building within the M25.

Prior to joining UCL, Daniel worked for Cambridge Architectural Research (CAR) Ltd, and the University of Cambridge. At CAR, as an Associate, Daniel was involved in numerous projects relating to energy use and the UK building stock. This included analysing highly disaggregated energy use data on the Household Electricity Survey, working on the Housing Energy Factfile, and producing a stock model to examine how different retrofit policies might change energy consumption and emissions over time. For the University of Cambridge, he worked on the Energy Efficiency Fund project, monitoring the impact of different improvement programmes within NHS Trusts.

Daniel has also worked as a building services engineer, gaining experience of the practical aspects of building design. This included sizing and locating services and plant and carrying out wider environmental and energy analyses on projects in the UK and abroad.
