How Lockdown Has Changed Our Understanding in Energy Management for Buildings

Energy Management often emphasises the influence of occupant presence and actions on energy use in buildings. But what happen when these buildings are left vacant over a long period of time?

You’d expect a significant reduction in energy use, right?

In reality, many reports have highlighted a marginal drop in energy use .

So why empty Buildings still consumed lots of energy during lockdown?

Could it be that buildings present a remaining energy consumption that is unnoticeable in regular operation, but become evident in cases of restrict operation, such as during the first lockdown?

The panel will share their findings (some very surprising) and discuss their impact on future requirements for energy and building management.
