Overview

Overview

Energy is an abstraction. It provides a common measurement for vastly different kinds of capabilities, and so requires plans, images, narratives, and other kinds of accounts to make it useful for policy and design. Energy accounts take many forms, from data-driven resource projections to heat or air flow simulations in buildings to images of future […] more…

About

In the formation of an ambitious five-year, DOE-funded project to reduce the energy consumption of commercial buildings (Energy Efficient Building Hub, EEB Hub), a challenging question has persisted. Does energy consumption influence architectural style? Putting the question in its original form, should more energy-efficient buildings look different and can that “look” be used to explain […] more…
