ZEBRA (Zero Energy Building Reduced Algorithm) is a free novel and simple tool for modelling the energy and carbon performance of buildings.
Centre for Energy and the Design of Environments
We conduct innovative research and consultancy in sustainable building design and environmental engineering, including renewable energy and energy efficiency.
Our researchers have found a way to produce downloadable localised weather data that will accurately predict how hot the UK could be in 2080.
Researchers at the University of Bath have developed a new approach for improving the energy efficiency of historic buildings without changing their character.
People displaced by natural disasters could benefit from recyclable plastic-based shelters from University of Bath researchers and plastics company Protomax.
Research led by Professor David Coley has helped in the formal certification of a PassivHaus school in Exeter.
We are a group of academic and post-doctoral research staff from the fields of sustainable building design, energy efficiency and environmental engineering.
Our doctoral students are working with our academic staff to carry out research across the remit of the Centre for Energy and the Design of Environments.
We collaborate closely with industry to develop research projects and maximise their impact.
