Modelling Occupant Behaviour for Performance-based Design Process

In line with IEA-EBC Annex 79, this research project will deploy long-term occupant behaviour data and conduct simulation-based investigations to address an essential question pertinent to the occupant-centric building design: How can simulation-based building design processes along with energy codes and standards better account for occupants’ needs and behaviour to yield healthier, more comfortable and energy-efficient buildings for occupants?
