Biography

Dr Sung Min Hong joined the Institute for Environmental Design and Engineering as a Research Associate in 2015. He is a building scientist with experiences in architectural and environmental design practices, and built environment research. Sung Min gained a Bachelor’s degree in Building Science from Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand, an MSc with a distinction in Environmental Design and Engineering from the Bartlett School of Graduate Studies at UCL, and a PhD in Built Environment research from UCL Energy Institute. Funded by Chartered Institution for Building Services Engineers (CIBSE), Sung Min’s doctoral research focused on exploring and identifying ways for improving the robustness of benchmarking the operational energy efficiency of non-domestic buildings, with a particular focus on English schools. His research highlighted ways in which the current Display Energy Certificate (DEC) scheme could be improved to provide the public and building operators with more relevant and robust feedback on how efficiently energy is being used in buildings. Findings from the research project informed various stakeholders in the built environment on the latest patterns of energy use of public sector non-domestic buildings, the CIBSE with a set of recommendations on how a robust benchmarking framework could be established in the future, and Education Funding Agency’s (EFA) Priority School Building Programme (PSBP).

Research Summary
Sung Min’s research interests include analysing and benchmarking the operational energy efficiency of non-domestic buildings; operational performance evaluation of corporate real estates and facilities management; building stock energy modelling.

Sung Min is currently involved in a project funded by the CIBSE and supported by Depart for Energy and Climate Change (DECC), Department for Education (DfE), Education Funding Agency (EFA), and Crown Commercial Service (CCS). The project aims to adopt an innovative approach for analysing and benchmarking the patterns of energy use of the English school estate in order to fill the gaps in knowledge and support various departments in making effective policy and capital investment decisions to reduce carbon emission to achieve the national 2050 target.
