Jun 23 - Jun 23

00:00 AM - 23:59 PM

Centre for Advanced Research in Building Science and Energy (CARBSE) at CEPT University awarded project titled ‘Integrated Urban Model for Built Environment Energy Research (iNUMBER)’ by Dept. of Science and Technology (DST), India and Engineering and Physical Science Research Council (EPSRC), the UK. DST and EPSRC are jointly supporting collaborative research projects focusing on reducing energy demand in the built environments. The funding support aims to bring together the Indian and UK scientific research and innovation sectors to find a joint solution to the challenges in the field of building energy efficiency. iNUMBER is one of the four project awarded by Indian and UK government, recently.

CARBSE @ CEPT will work with UCL Energy Institute, UK, University of Oxford, UK and Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay during 2018-2022. iNUMBER will develop three-dimensional interactive energy model of two cities in India helping cities manage their present and future energy demand better. The project will focus on energy consumed by private buildings, public buildings and city infrastructure such as water supply, and street lighting. The project will develop and use non-intrusive data capturing technologies utilising recent development in information – digital technology.

iNUMBER project R&D team will receive support from industry partners such as Fosters+Partners, Schneider Electric, Bentley Systems, Centre for Policy Research and Urban Management Centre. Prof. Vidyadhar Phatak, Dean Faculty of Planning, CEPT Uni and Prof. Paul Ruyssevelt, UCL Energy Institute will lead this project.
