Competition funded PhD Project open for applications (UK students only)

Applications are open for a funded PhD studentship at the University of Bath, one of a number that are in competition for funding from the University of Bath URSA competition.

An optimisable energy-water nexus approach for operational net zero homes

Project summary
This doctoral study will work towards filling this gap by proposing an energy-water nexus approach for operational net zero homes. Within this framework, potential students may propose innovative strategies which includes assessment indices, BIM templates, process-based methods or decision tools aimed at the early-design and renovation planning stages. The emphasis should include the benchmarking, synthesis, application, and evaluation or innovative nexus technologies performance to facilitate solution optimisation and trade-offs, go/no-go decisions, and regulatory compliance. Importantly, candidates should propose outcomes that will deliver simple, optimisable methodological and practical design solutions that would enable the widespread scaling up of net-zero strategies to enable new or existing homes to meaningfully contribute to achieving the 2050 targets.
