dc.description.abstractThis paper discusses a research project investigating whether the application of ‘buildings as power stations’ (BPS) technologies actually work in practice to maximise energy efficiency and user comfort, while minimising energy costs and associated carbon emissions, which commenced in April 2017. The aim of the project is to determine whether the inclusion of BPS technologies therefore contributes to a more sustainable built environment and to evaluate the parameters needed to create energy positive buildings. The project will consider how ‘buildings as power stations’ can help address the challenges facing the construction industry in meeting Welsh and UK Government targets for reducing carbon emissions and improving the industry, as well as global targets for dealing with climate change.en_US
