Digitally twinned rating systems for low energy housing in Scotland.

This PhD Project aims to develop innovative ‘digitally twinned’ rating systems for low energy housing in Scotland. Energy efficiency is becoming a pressing issue that must be addressed in current and future housing developments. Read more

Low-carbon building retrofit by adopting an integrated archetype and net-zero approach

Summary. This PhD opportunity emerges from the need to develop an archetype and low-carbon heating approach that delivers Scotland's net-zero targets considering the implications of the built heritage, the surrounding public and private space and the communities that depend on many of our existing built heritage. Read more

Uncertainty and Sensitivity Analysis of UK housing stock’s energy and carbon performance

To better inform the energy use and CO 2 reduction potential of the UK housing stock, computational models can simulate housing energy use and CO 2 emissions to test the effectiveness of decarbonisation scenarios. Read more

Performance criteria for passive housing systems using nanostructured behaviours for energy harvesting and environmental comfort

In the context of wider goals towards Sustainable Development Goals SDGs through Net Zero Energy Building nZEB. A combination of sustainable design and renewable energy harvesting strategies is a promising path to sustainable development in the construction sector. Read more

Building integrated Photvoltaic for existing bulidings

As the quest for sustainable building increases, Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) promises to be a viable energy source that easily blends with modern architectural materials. Read more

Delivering Sustainable Energy Solutions to Ports

Ports are major sources of greenhouse gas emissions as they commonly move up to 10,000 containers a day from ship to road or rail transport and correspondingly in the reverse direction from land transport onto ships. Read more

Modular and industrialised solutions for building retrofit

More than 85% of the 2050 building stock is already built and almost all will require some form of retrofit/renovation in order to meet global carbon emissions reductions goals. Read more

Construction materials and products. Investigation about embodied carbon assessment methods and solutions

Buildings consume 40% of energy produced in the world. This percentage increases to over 60% in the UK. In European countries, existing regulations limit operational energy consumption/carbon emissions and have brought to considerable savings. Read more

Development of Cognitive Digital Twin for Predictive Maintenance of Building Facilities

As an emerging concept, digital twins have been adopted to save costs and improve reliabilities in many different industries, including the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry. Read more

AI-in-the-loop design optimization of building structures

Building sector accounted for near 40% of energy and process-related CO2 emissions in recent years. To ensure a sustainable built environment, it is vitally important to design buildings that are structurally efficient. Read more

Combining radiative cooling and emissive energy harvesting: generating power at night

PhD opportunity at the University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia. The School of Photovoltaic and Renewable Energy Engineering (SPREE) is widely regarded as the one of the leading Photovoltaics research hubs in the world. Read more
