Pioneering Net Zero Homes: A Study of Bellway “The Future Home” Simulation Calibration (2024)
Conference Proceeding
Tsang, C., Fitton, R., Hernandez, H. D., Henshaw, G., & Sitmalidis, A. (2024). Pioneering Net Zero Homes: A Study of Bellway “The Future Home” Simulation Calibration.

This paper demonstrates how Bellway's "The Future Home (TFH)" project contributes to the decarbonisation of UK housing stock, providing valuable insight into building net zero homes. A dynamic simulation model was initially created using design U-val... Read More about Pioneering Net Zero Homes: A Study of Bellway “The Future Home” Simulation Calibration.

Assessing Building Performance in A Low Carbon Home: A comparative study of the energy modelling representing design and as-built phase (2024)
Conference Proceeding
Zhang, X., Fitton, R., Diaz Hernandez, H., Henshaw, G., Sitmalidis, A., Tsang, C., & Swan, W. (in press). Assessing Building Performance in A Low Carbon Home: A comparative study of the energy modelling representing design and as-built phase.

Buildings, as the second-largest carbon emitter, play a significant role in decarbonising efforts to achieve net zero in the UK. The proposed Future Homes Standard aims to ensure a 75-80% reduction in carbon emissions by increasing the building energ...
