Research activities and projects:

Leader of the work package 3, "responsive and energy efficient buildings", in the Norwegian research centre on Zero Emission Neighbourhoods in Smart Cities, ZEN (www.fmezen.no). 

Integration of heating, cooling and ventilation systems in buildings

  • HVAC for renovation of single-family houses (OPPTRE project).
  • Design and integration of heat pump systems (ChiNoZEN project).
  • Building integration of wood stoves (SusWoodStoves project).

Energy flexibility of buildings and control

  • Energy flexible operation of heat pump systems.
  • Data-driven modelling and Model Predictive Control of buildings (Norwegian research centre on Zero Emission Neighbourhoods in Smart Cities, ZEN).
Other modelling developments
  • High-resolution CFD for airflows inside buildings.

Memberships of committees:
