This study presents an evaluation of the effectiveness of thermal envelope improvement measures for slum dwellings in the warmer regions of the globe. The study is structured on validated EnergyPlus simulation models of typical poor slum construction, with standard and improved low‑cost thermal configurations. These models are then tested in different worldwide locations….
