Abstract: In this paper Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs) is used to model effects of various human behaviour on energy consumption of the residential buildings in the UK. A virtual model of a bungalow has been developed in which various aspects of the, physical changes in the building such as wall and floor insulation, single and double glazing combined by the human behaviour aspects such as thermostat setting, various periods of door and/or window opening etc. are modelled using EnergyPlus software for evaluating energy consumption for a combination of scenarios. ANNs were then used to learn the effects of various human behaviours on energy consumption. The results demonstrated that the ANN is capable of learning the effects that changes in the human behaviour have in evaluating energy saving in residential buildings and it generated results very quickly for unseen cases.
