A Novel Concept For Virtual Reality Enhanced Building Energy Modelling

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference paperpeer-review


Energy services are central components for reducing the energy consumption of buildings. In the context of a long-term transformation towards sustainable energy systems, it is crucial that the building occupiers remain at the centre of such services. This paper presents a new technological conceptual framework for "Next Generation Energy Services" which involves a combination of the following technologies: Virtual Reality (VR), physical simulation and Internet of Things (IoT) platforms. The paper demonstrates the concept of this framework on the use case “Human Aspects in Buildings”, where variations in material properties can also show an educational value in conveying the principles of building physics, using building performance simulation.
