This paper presents the role of simulation in a large UK research project, eViz, which aims to reduce building energy demand reduction through visualisation. Based on evaluation of various options through simulation, eViz aims to intervene in occupant behaviour and help people to reduce their energy use; the paradigm used is human-in-the-loop analysis, in other words the project anticipates significant interaction with the occupant to arrive at feasible options. The paper presents a pilot study that applies this approach in a domestic property located in the North of England.
