DecarboN8 – an integrated network to decarbonise transport

The latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change in 2018 highlighted the need for urgent, transformative change, on an unprecedented scale, if global warming is to be restricted to 1.5C. The DecarboN8 project will develop a new network of researchers, working closely with industry and government, capable of designing solutions which can be deployed rapidly and at scale.

Quantifying Evapotranspiration from Urban Green Infrastructure

This project explores 3 experimental methods to infer and quantify evapotranspiration (ET) from a set of green roof test beds, each with a varied vegetation/substrate combination. The aim of the project is to find suitable techniques that can be reproduced to measure ET in a SuDS (Sustainable Drainage Systems) context within urbanised areas.

Characterising Building Geometry at Scale

Building geometry is significant in many ways such as the urban building retrofit and building stock analysis. However, the current approaches to collect building geometry data is highly limited to on-site survey or pre-registered data. The project aims to develop a method which utilises computer vision technologies to characterise building geometry data at scale with a high automation level.

Urban air quality monitoring, mapping and modelling to determine the main drivers of air pollution

The core aims of this PhD project are to understand spatiotemporal variability of air quality and determine the main drivers of air pollution in urban areas by: (a) deploying a dense network of air quality sensors based on multiple criteria, and (b) employing various air quality modelling and mapping techniques including geostatistical interpolations, statistical and dispersion modelling and data fusion approaches.

Automated Residential Retrofit Assessment Trial Preparation in Partnership with Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council

UK 2050 decarbonisation target requires rapid deployment of retrofit measures across over 20m existing homes. This project aims to establish and strengthen collaborations on residential retrofit activities with the Barnsley council achieved through a proof-of-concept deployment of Sheffield’s automated drive-by building assessment for the council’s social housing decarbonisation program.

Alternative mobility and alternative routes in the Sheffield City Region

This project analysed the main traffic routes in the Sheffield City Region (SCR) and compared them to the optimal routing of electric vehicles and the decreased volumes expected by the progressive adoption of alternative mobility means (e.g. electric bikes).
