Exploring the relationship between urban built form and energy consumption in cities using Local Climate Zone (LCZ) Framework

This research aims to assess the thermal behaviour of different urban built forms in the selected city and identify the
vulnerable urban built forms. Further, it attempts to establish the relationship between urban form and energy
consumption. ? To analyze the thermal behaviour and microclimate variation of the selected urban built forms through
micro-meteorological field measurements. ? To examine the relationship between thermal behaviour and energy consumption in different urban forms
and identify the vulnerable urban built form in the city. ? To recommend appropriate mitigation strategies for reducing the impact of heat stress in the
neighbourhoods through Envi-Met
