Energy and Environment Division

Welcome

The Energy and Environment Division develops measurement science, predictive models, and performance metrics to improve the energy efficiency of building components and systems, reduce building related CO2 emissions, enhance the quality of the indoor environment, and improve the building design and construction process through the integration of information, communications, sensing, and automation technologies.

Through extensive publications and active participation in consensus organizations such as the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, the American Society for Testing and Materials, and the Fully Integrated and Automated Technology Consortium, research results from the Division are disseminated to the private sector in a timely manner and provide the basis for many consensus standards used throughout the building industry.
