Leeds Sustainability Institute (LSI)

Research to improve the sustainability of the built environment.

Over the last 25 years the LSI’s research has been fundamental in establishing the concept of the “performance gap”, which is now ubiquitous in building energy efficiency sector. We aim to influence policy in all our projects; our research has already led to changes to Part L of the Building Regulations for England and Wales, and additionally, established building performance evaluation (BPE) as a major focus for research council, government and industry funding.

The LSI is at the forefront of research into the built environment covering areas of modelling, behaviour change, data analytics, and of course, building performance evaluation methods. In particular, the group’s electric coheating test has become a gold standard in the industry as a means of measuring aggregate heat loss from buildings.

You can read more about our research and our current and past projects by visiting the relevant research theme below, see what our staff and doctoral students are working on or access our research archive to find all our previous research projects and outputs.

If you would like to collaborate or study with us please email LSI@leedsbeckett.ac.uk or call 0113 812 6513.
