Carbon Reduction in Buildings
The use of electricity, specifically through overnight lighting in non-domestic buildings, is a cause for increasing carbon dioxide emissions. Through our project, we developed and implemented a methodology for nighttime observations and studied the reasons for overnight lighting in commercial buildings. Analysis of our data led to an estimation of power consumption from overnight lighting. Our sponsor will combine our results with existing data to develop a model for predicting carbon dioxide emissions in the United Kingdom.
