Understanding the influence of occupants' behaviour on the hygrothermal performance of insulated solid walls. (2014)
Presentation / Conference
HERRERA GUTIERREZ-AVELLANOSA, D. and BENNADJI, A. 2014. Understanding the influence of occupants' behaviour on the hygrothermal performance of insulated solid walls. Presented at the 2014 Conference of the European Network for Housing Research (ENHR 2014), 1-4 July 2014, Edinburgh, UK.

Residential buildings in the UK consume around 28% of total final energy use. Therefore, in order to achieve the CO2 and fuel poverty reduction targets set by the Scottish government, it will be necessary to improve the energy efficiency of the exist...
