Our panel of experts will look at the influence of occupant behaviour on the operational energy performance of buildings, discussing various tools and techniques to engage occupants in minimising their energy consumption. Speakers will present the outcomes of case studies they have been involved with and examine the drivers and barriers for widespread and permanent change through an organisation.

Euan Burns will be discussing “Occupant behaviour, the Engineer and the Systems”: A look across different building environments and the varying degrees of influence that a system or an occupant can have on the energy consumption. Benjamin Kott will talk about the need for quality data to drive behaviour change, focussing on using technology to improve energy performance. Nicola Combe looks at how people use heating in their homes, providing an overview of existing controls and the challenges they present, and how better technology can enable people to reduce their energy consumption. Richard Francis will be talking about the intersection of occupant behaviour, energy usage and asset value, with an emphasis on how tenant use can impact overall building sales and rental prices.

CBx breakfast sessions are  short, sharp discussions of cross-sector issues with recognised practitioners in the field. Speakers will come from across the built lifecycle sector to provide industry, academia and government  perspectives on each subject, helping to raise challenges and enable an open discussion around the solutions.
