Energy demand from the built environment is complex: factors including climate, technology performance, design, build quality, consumer behaviour and economics combine creating effects and counter effects to challenge researchers, policy makers and industry. This talk will focus on simplicity: the application of Bayesian methods to simple characterisations of these complex systems. The use of Bayesian data analysis is becoming increasingly common in the physical sciences due to the powerful error analysis, model selection and incorporation of prior knowledge it affords. In this talk we discuss the analysis of data from energy demand in buildings using Bayesian techniques illustrated by two very different examples: heat flow through a wall and the impact of condensing boilers on UK energy demand.
About the speakers:
Cliff is Lecturer in Energy Demand and the Built Environment at UCL Energy Institute. Cliff is an experimental physicist, and his research focuses on applying tools and techniques developed outside the energy domain, such as measurement techniques, experimental design and data analysis. His research aims to provide simple physical insights within the complex energy and buildings sector. Cliff is Academic Manager of the Centre for Doctoral Training in Energy Demand and the Built Environment, Departmental Graduate Tutor and Course Director for the MRes in Energy Demand Studies.
Phill is a physicist who has spent 11 years in High Energy Particle Physics research at CERN Geneva and DESY Hamburg, 5 years in Astrophysics research at Cambridge and 10 years Physics of Buildings research at UCL. During his career Phill has gained a large wealth of practical experience in experimental set up, data collection and analysis from experiments on the very small to the very large scale.

UCL Energy Institute
About the UCL Energy Institute:
Founded in June 2009, the UCL Energy Institute (UCL-Energy) was established as UCL’s response to the global challenges of mitigating climate change and providing energy security in the 21st century. UCL-Energy, which sits within the Bartlett Faculty of the Built Environment at UCL, brings together different perspectives, understandings and procedures in energy research, transcending the boundaries between academic disciplines. It coordinates multidisciplinary teams from across the University, with the aim of accelerating the transition to a globally sustainable energy system through world-class energy research, education and policy support. www.ucl.ac.uk/energy Follow on Twitter @ucl_energy
