We are pleased to announce that a REFIT paper has recently been accepted at the CIB W78 2013 conference in Beijing, China. In this paper Dr Steven Firth et al focus on the potential of decision support systems for retrofit provision in domestic buildings, using monitoring technologies and performance-based analysis. The main question that rises through the paper is: in the age of proliferation of cheap, mobile and networked sensing equipment, how can measured energy and performance data from multiple in-home sensors be utilised to accelerate building retrofit measures and energy demand reduction?
The paper shall be presented at the 30th International Conference on Applications of IT in the AEC Industry, 9-12 October 2013. More information on the upcoming conference can be found at http://2013cibw78.civil.tsinghua.edu.cn/
