Buildings energy efficiency technical research

BEIS technical research covering energy efficiency measures in the domestic sector.

Improving the performance of the UK’s dwellings is an essential part of meeting climate change commitments.

BEIS has funded or part funded a number of research projects in this area, covering, amongst others the following aspects:

  • In-situ measurements of the performance of buildings
  • Analysis on the energy saving potential of measures
  • Identification of risks that arise from retrofit of insulation
  • Quantification of the costs of domestic energy saving measures
