The Sustainable Energy Research Group undertakes research in core areas of energy, specifically in :
- Cities and Infrastructure
- Data and Modelling
- Energy and Behaviour
- Energy and Buildings
- Energy for Development
- Environmental Impacts
- Microgeneration Technologies and
- Renewable Energy (Solar Photovoltaics and Marine Energy).
Alongside these aspects the SERG conducts field studies and research to understand the underlying mechanisms of building controls, occupant behaviour and energy demand interactions inside cities.
Our research aims to develop appropriate strategies for both new buildings and for the refurbishment of existing buildings. The interactions between the buildings, their users and the environment are key to the future success of low carbon buildings and cities.
