Article
Full-text available
This article introduces a new web-based decision support system created for early-stage feasibility assessments of renewable energy technologies in England, UK. The article includes a review of energy policy and regulation in England and a critical evaluation of literature on similar decision support systems. Overall, it shows a novel solution for...
Article
Full-text available
Vehicle-to-grid (V2G) has been identified as a key technology to help reduc carbon emissions from the transport and energy sectors. However, the benefits of this technology are best achieved when multiple variables are considered in the process of charging and discharging an electric vehicle. These variables include vehicle behaviour, building ener...
Article
Full-text available
Vehicle-to-grid services make use of the aggregated capacity available from a fleet of vehicles to participate in energy markets, help integrate renewable energy in the grid and balance energy use. In this paper, the critical components of such a service are described in the context of a commercial service that is currently under development. Key a...
Article
Vehicle-to-grid (V2G) services utilise a population of electric vehicle batteries to provide the aggregated capacity required to participate in power and energy markets. Such participation relies on the prediction of available capacity to support the reliable delivery of agreed reserves at a future time. In this work real historical trip data from...
Article
‘Community Energy’ refers to people working together to reduce and manage energy use and increase and support local energy generation. It has the potential to support the infrastructural, social and cultural changes needed to reduce the impact of climate change and increase energy security. The core part of community energy initiatives is people; t...
Article
Full-text available
Vehicle-to-grid services draw power or curtail demand from electric vehicles when they are connected to a compatible charging station. In this paper, we investigated automated machine learning for predicting when vehicles are likely to make such a connection. Using historical data collected from a vehicle tracking service, we assessed the technique...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change in their Special Report on Global warming, it is clear that there is a need of a rapid change in all aspects of society to achieve limiting global warming to 1.5°C. The transport sector alone is currently responsible for 20.5% of the global emissions. Therefore, the transport sector is expl...

Energy policies and regulations are constantly introduced to reflect the current developments of the energy system. The introduction of sustainable energy technologies creates a demand for alternative sources of energy and economic incentives which are widely adopted. This paper presents the panorama of the energy regulatory system and the perspect...

Article
The study of human behaviour outdoors has been an area of interest examined from different perspectives. Even so, the study of human behaviour in outdoor public spaces still requires further input from the perspective of human factors. This thesis presents a literature review of behaviour in public spaces where the author evaluated the attendance t...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper presents part of the outcomes of a programme of research into the influence of the thermal environment on human behaviour in an outdoor public seating area. The research was conducted during one month in summer, autumn and winter of 2015 and 2016. The data gathered consists in the conduct of people using a public square in Nottingham cit...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Architecture and Acoustic are intimately related, been sound an extremely important part of the human natural environment. Sounds give specific qualities to spaces establishing whether or not a hearing condition is pleasant or annoying to those who inhabit them, and may or may not favor oral communication, a fundamental activity in human interactio...

This paper contains the first stage of a research developed by Buen Comienzo Programme, Medellin Mayor's Office and a group of Architects, to identify the minimum area required for a child aged between 3 and 5 years old, while occupying a kindergarten. According to the Colombian Technical Regulation (NTC4595) for architectural design in Colombia, t...

This paper contains the second stage of the research "The minimum area required for children aged between 3 and 5 years old in a kindergarten", which was developed between Buen Comienzo Programme, Medellin's Municipality and Architects Julie Waldron and Ader Garcia. Often, kindergarten are planned in a conventional way of construction; they are des...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In this study, Intermediate Body Positions refers to a group of spontaneous gestures assumed by people interacting with surrounding objects, which are in between biped-erect and sitting-standard. Furniture that motivates the sitting-standard posture is usually found in outdoors as the only option to rest; therefore users adopt different objects to...

Conference Paper
The current challenges regarding climate variations and energy consumption rates are pushing designers, architects and engineers to create strategies to improve the efficiency of new systems, as well as those already existent. In this effort to find more solutions, systems are frequently over passing the limits of the human body; affecting its heal...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Permanence of people in public spaces is conditioned to several environmental factors, such as solar insolation. This specific factor is of particular interest in tropical countries, since it determines the comfort levels of people staying in public places for a length of time. This paper contains the analysis of people´s Areas of Permanence in pub...

For a tropical city like Medellin, Colombia, with a warm-wet climate, the natural ventilation is determinant for thermal comfort and air quality. These environmental factors are important for a satisfactory development of recreational and formative activities of teachers and children in the classroom. With this in mind, the behavior of air drafts i...

Project
AMiCc is a research and development project evaluating the benefits of wireless charging systems to enable fleet vehicles with short dwell times and high utilization to switch to electric when they would otherwise have been unable to do so. www.projectamicc.com Twitter: @ProjectAMiCc
Project
EV-elocity is a research and development project looking at increasing the uptake of electric vehicles through helping consumers to monetise their investment using vehicle-to-grid (V2G) innovation. The project is exploring new technologies, encouraging behaviour change and developing business models that will enable the sharing of the value V2G can bring to the grid, local and regional businesses and the consumer. Our ecosystem of partners is looking to develop a new set of offerings using innovative V2G solutions such as dedicated and intelligent parking, loyalty programmes through new data patterns and inside airport individually targeted information. The project will demonstrate the value of this offering via six case studies with a view of scaling deployment across the country and Internationally. The EV-elocity project is funded by the Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV), the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and facilitated by Innovate UK. www.ev-elocity.com @EV_elocity
Project
To analyse and define patterns of the human behaviour in outdoors, in terms of activities, body postures, use of furniture, time of permanence, demographic characteristics and adaptive actions. To identify the relationship between the observed patterns of behaviour and the thermal environment. To identify the influence of multiple environmental factors in the behaviour of people, in order to predict the variability of the behaviour in certain conditions.
