Abstract

3DStock is a spatially structured, complete building stock model that covers large areas of England and Wales and represents the stock in great detail. The individual building data can be aggregated to a wider geographical scale for generalised analysis. Here, the model is used to explore the relationship between built form, energy use and urban density. Using aggregated (sub-national) metered energy data and aggregated floorspace this paper shows how these results vary with increasing density. By using very large empirical datasets in this way it is shown that density and compactness have a significant influence on the energy use intensity of domestic buildings.
