Adam O’ Donovan
Post Doctoral Researcher
MTU Cork Energy Transition Energy Management


Adam is a postdoctoral researcher at the MeSSO Research Group in Cork Institute of Technology. Over the past five years, he has worked on projects in the National Built Energy Retrofit Test-bed (NBERT) and was part of Sub Task C for the IEA-EBC Annex 62 on Ventilative Cooling. Currently, Adam is working on the SEAI RD&D funded project “DesignforIU”, which focuses on identifying the range of in-use factors for a number of energy efficient technologies. He is also co-lead on project RESILIENCE an SEAI RD&D funded project focusing on overheating in A-rated naturally ventilated non-residential buildings.

Feature Project


This project uses high resolution measurements coupled with mechanistic energy models, calibrated using training data, to identify the range of in use factors for a number of established low energy technologies in the Irish Energy sector.
