- characterising the thermal performance of occupied dwellings from in situ data;
- the development of a novel technique to characterise the thermal performance of building elements utilising Bayesian analysis;
- investigation into the distribution of airtightness test results for new UK dwellings, and how they relate to targets set for compliance purposes;
- investigation of the thermal performance of floors and walls, and the unintended consequences of retrofitting;
- estimation of the efficiency improvement associated with the replacement of conventional with condensing boilers in the building stock from national datasets.
- UK Centre for Research in Energy Demand Solutions (CREDS) (EP/R035288/1), leading sub-theme 1.2 “Disrupting the system performance and deployment of low energy/power retrofit and new build – through digital, business and market innovation”.
- BEIS Smart Meter Enabled Thermal Efficiency Rating (SMETER) Innovation Competition as part of the Technical Assessment Contractor (with Loughborough University (PI), Leeds Beckett University and Halton Housing).
- IEA Annex 71: Building energy performance assessment based on in-situ measurements.
- Centre for Energy Epidemiology, leading the Cliff led the Metrology Theme, researching whole house thermal characterisation.
Cliff is Deputy Director of the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Energy Demand (LoLo) and the CDT in Energy Resilience and the Built Environment (ERBE). His role centres on delivery of the core goals of the CDT, primarily to promote and develop excellence in the provision of doctoral training, to undertake world class research on energy demand and the built environment and to deliver first class researchers into the workforce. More information on the centre is available on the LoLo webpage (http://www.lolo.ac.uk/).
Cliff is Course Director of the Smart Energy and the Built Envrionment MSc, launching in 2021. He teaches the Smart Distributed Energy Systems module.
Cliff supervises PhD and masters students on a range of topics related to his research interests.
Cliff has previously been Course Director of the MRes EDS and Departmental Graduate Tutor (Research) for the Bartlett School of Environment, Energy and Resources (BSEER), overseeing and providing support to the School's MPhil, PhD and EngD students and their supervisors.
