Project Highlight

Retrofitting public buildings for energy and water

The aim of this project is to develop a best-practice guidebook on energy and water efficiency auditing and retrofitting of existing public building stock.

We have...

Developed an integrated model for retrofitting public buildings for energy and water efficiency

Examined product stewardship transitions for solar panels

Analysed and mapped ecosystem and socio-economic resilience in Tanna Island and Vanuatu

Developed a systems model for water scarcity pricing

Predicted sea-level rise and coastal erosion using spatial Bayesian network

Risk and vulnerability assessment of climate change and malaria transmission in East Africa

Developed an integrated model for potable water treatment efficiency

Developed a structurally aware discretisation for Bayesian networks
