Background and activities
Graduated in Building Engineering in 2015 at Politecnico di Milano, Matteo Favero is a PhD Candidate at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering of the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim, Norway. He is a member of the BPS Lab at NTNU and of the "WP4: Energy flexible neighbourhoods", inside the Research Centre on Zero Energy Neighbourhoods in Smart Cities (ZEN Centre).
His research deals with investigating how indoor thermal conditions may modulate to provide the capability to the buildings for matching the grid needs while guaranteeing satisfactory comfort conditions. The outcome of this study will support the development of smart control algorithms for buildings, that will be tested experimentally in the ZEB Test Cell Facility to find out their effect on building energy use and indoor thermal comfort.
