Professor david coley

Principal Investigator. Professor of Low Carbon Design, Director of the Centre for Energy and the Design of Environments (EDEn) and Director of the Building Research Park in the Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering at Bath. His main research interests are in finding out why people, buildings and cities use energy and how little they could use. He has worked extensively with commercial companies in the built environment including Corus (Tata), Mowlem, Carillion, Bam, NPS, and with local authorities. He was the driving force behind the UK‘s first major zero-carbon Passivhaus building.
