(Submissions are Closed)
Problem Set #2 Description
Robust energy management programs are an important way for both building owners and tenants to reduce energy consumption and associated emissions. This problem set explores strategies to help reduce energy consumption through the deployment of energy management systems or other products/technologies.
i. How does your solution help building owners use less energy to heat and cool buildings?
ii. How does your solution help building owners and/or tenants manage and reduce plug load?
iii. How does your solution mitigate energy loss/gain and minimize energy use needed to maintain prescribed indoor environmental conditions? Potential solutions could explore innovations in smart windows, shading technologies, insulation materials, energy recovery and ventilation, etc.
iv. How does your solution help engage or empower tenants to make optimal energy use decisions?
