Biography

Phil Banfill is a materials scientist, with 40 years experience of research and education in a university environment. He was appointed Professor of Construction Materials at Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, in 1995 and has published two books and over 190 papers on construction materials and energy in buildings. Most of his work has been concerned with materials, but the sustainability theme brought him into the research community concerned with energy in buildings. He is a senior member of the Urban Energy Research Group (12 staff and research students) with interests in Climate change, sustainability, CO2 reduction, life cycle assessment Existing building stock – refurbishment, modelling, assessment Historic, traditionally constructed, and “hard to treat” buildings Low and zero carbon technologies, and system integration Energy consumption and performance monitoring Human factors – users, policymakers, investors, fuel poverty.
