Abstract

The energy used in domestic buildings contribute a large percentage of the world’s carbon emissions; while modern building techniques can produce dwellings with a low in-use energy requirement, a greater impact can be made by improving the existing, poorly performing housing stock [1] . This paper presents the results of monitoring several case studies of Victorian terraced houses as part of the Green deal Go Early Project (GDGE) run by Salford University on behalf of the UK Government. The results are compared to those extracted from the Energy House brick-built test facility sited in the Energy Hub in the University of Salford. The comparison of both outcomes provides an accurate definition of the terrace house typology from Northern England from an historical and technical point of view and a dataset of indicators for its optimal improvement as well as the quantification of the implemented measures.
