Identifying the benefits of using UKCP09 probabilistic data in property drainage design and adaption in order to reduce flood risk.
Research focused on the city of Leicester, examining buildings, transport and carbon emissions.
PROMETHEUS: The use of probabilistic climate data to future proof design decisions in the buildings sector
The project developed a new set of probabilistic reference years that can be understood and used by building designers.
The COPSE project developed derived weather data for building designers, based on probabilistic climate projections rather than observed data.
Based at Cranfield University, CREW developed a set of tools to improve the capacity of local communities to cope with the impacts of extreme weather events
LUCID: The Development of a Local Urban Climate Model and its Application to the Intelligent Development of Cities
The project aims to understand the impact of local climate on energy use, comfort and health.
Developing tools to help planners, designers, engineers and users to adapt urban areas, with a particular emphasis on heat and human comfort.
