Abstract

Global warming and the continuous increase of energy cost are driving the need for reducing energy consumption. Buildings are responsible for approximately 50% of the UK energy consumption. Major part of this consumption is for heating and air conditioning of buildings. Nottingham Trent University is a leading university in the UK in relation to improving the performance of its buildings in order to improve insulation and energy consumption. The experimental case studies presented in this paper highlights some of the new measures taken to reduce energy consumption and enhance the sustainability of the University buildings. Infrared thermography is used to evaluate insulation measures and energy performance. The results indicate that enhanced insulation combined with modern sustainable technologies can significantly reduce energy consumption.
