DAYLIGHTING AND ENERGY IN BUILDINGS
The sustainability movement has brought the importance of using natural light optimally to the forefront of responsible architectural practice. Utilization of daylight in indoor spaces creates opportunities for energy savings and is linked to increasing productivity in the workplace. This focus area, explores various performance measures linked to natural lighting, as well as general building energy investigations.
Daylighting for Cognition: Improving Cognitive Performance and Well-being in Office Environments using Electrochromic Glazing
This study focuses on measuring the non-visual effects of daylighting controlled by electrochromic glazing on cognitive performance in the workplace.
VIS-SIM: A Framework for Designing Neighborhood Energy Efficiency through Data Visualization and Calibrated Urban Building Energy Simulation
A new generation of urban building energy models (UBEMs) are currently being developed to estimate neighborhood-scale hourly energy demand loads. The objectives of this research are to visualize relationships between energy-flow subjects that are not yet integrated within existing UBEMs.
