Conference Information
uSIM 2018 - Urban Energy Simulation focuses on the evolution of building simulation tools and their application to larger scale energy systems - beyond the building. These include community energy schemes, building stocks, district heating, smart grids and multi-vector energy networks. Applying building simulation to these wider energy systems brings its own unique set of challenges in areas ranging from data acquisition for multiple buildings to software developments to accommodate external energy grids. uSIM will bring together experts from academia and industry to explore the key challenges and to progress the state-of-the-art in knowledge and capabilities.

uSIM is supported by IBPSA Scotland, the Energy Technologies Partnership (ETP) and IES Ltd. The conference is being organised by the Energy Systems Research Unit (ESRU).


The conference will feature contributions in the following areas:

  • Modelling and simulation for community energy, smart heat and smart power networks
  • Commercial and domestic stock modelling and bottom-up stock modelling approaches
  • Urban energy demand, supply and resource estimation
  • Data acquisition and datasets for multi-building modelling
  • Software development and integration
  • Modelling diverse occupant populations and energy behaviours
  • Data analysis, visualisation and performance metrics
  • Calibration and validation
  • Modelling urban microclimate
  • Case studies in scaled-up modelling and simulation
