The University of Salford
The Applied Buildings and Energy Research Group is one of six specialist Research Centres within the School of the Built Environment at the University of Salford and is a very active group established to address concerns surrounding energy use in buildings. The focus is practical and covers issues such as monitoring, energy demand, human behaviour, designing and delivering effective solutions to improve the performance of buildings.
ABERG is also the home of the unique Salford Energy House. This is a full sized two bedroom terraced house built inside an environmental chamber that can replicate almost any weather conditions. This amazing test facility is fully furnished and packed with a vast array of sensors that can monitor a wide range of variables throughout the house and chamber.
