Wednesday, December 4, 2019. 4:00PM. Webinar: Energy Technology in Buildings. Tianzhen Hong, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and Janet Reyna, National Renewable Energy Laboratory. Sponsored by NOAA OAR. More information here.
Buildings in U.S. cities consume 30% to 70% of primary energy and are facing growing challenges of balancing demand and supply to optimize performance to reduce energy use, utility cost and GHG emissions. Furthermore, as cost and emissions intensities vary on the electric grid by time of day and season, the building sector could play a cooperative role in emissions reduction, system reliability improvements, and cost moderation. Both speakers will discuss their research and modeling of clean energy and energy demand reduction in buildings.
