Jennifer Elias

Senior Engineer, Sustainability
London, UK


I have 10 years’ experience in design optimisation and building performance assessment, and I am one of the Building Performance Services leads at Cundall. My experience includes Design for Performance optimisation studies encompassing energy, daylight, and thermal comfort modelling coupled with building operational energy analysis focusing on reducing energy and water consumption of buildings in operation.

My specialty is identifying and delivering solutions that will perform in operation and in turn using operational data to inform key design decisions upfront.

Through my work on design and delivery of NABERS-rated buildings in Australia I have a strong understanding of optimising energy efficiency in operation through the commissioning, handover, and post-occupancy verification periods. Seeing this through into continuous monitoring and optimisation of existing commercial and retail assets I have delivered substantial energy savings in operation, realised as improved asset NABERS ratings.  

I am a member of the London Energy Transformation Initiative (LETI) taskforce and was a key member of the team developing the operational energy targets for offices within the Climate Emergency Design Guide.
