PUrE Intrawise: An Integrated Framework for Improving Sustainability of the Indoor Environment

Internal description

Research Council Grant [RCG]

Description

The aim of the PUrE Intrawise consortium is to develop an integrated decision-support framework for more sustainable management of indoor pollution associated with the provision, conservation and use of energy in buildings. The framework will be applied to a number of case studies that will compare environmental, health and economic implications of the principal options for future home energy provision as an aid to policy development.

PUrE Intrawise builds on the PUrE project. While PUrE focused on outdoor pollution, PUrE Intrawise is concerned with indoor pollution. Its main aim is to develop an integrated decision-support framework for more sustainable management of indoor pollution associated with the provision, conservation and use of energy in buildings.

The main deliverables from the PUrE Intrawise project will be:

- A report on the current and future household energy options and related pollutants.

- A decision-support framework to enable sustainability comparisons of household energy options.

- Case studies related to energy efficiency; modal switching; and micro-generation.

- Guidance for regulation and policy for more sustainable provision and use of energy in households.
