Concerns about climate change and resilience have increased awareness of the interdependence of water and energy systems. Experts will explore sustainable water use and management, water-use intensity in electrical generation, and case studies in which water and energy were considered in an integrated manner.
Companies aspiring to sustainability and wellness have focused on managing workplace indoor environmental quality (IEQ). In this post we discuss why continuous monitoring technologies are ideal for evaluating building IEQ performance.
Researchers from CBE and our collaborators from SinBerBEST (a Berkeley-Singapore research collaboration) were awarded all three 2018 Best Paper Awards given by Building and Environment, an international journal that publishes original research related to building science and human interaction with the built environment.
The gap between predicted and measured building performance poses an ongoing challenge. Because reliable methods for predicting building performance are critical to addressing this challenge, students and faculty at CBE are developing and testing new approaches to building performance simulation.
As 2018 comes to a close, here at CBE we can look back on many successes over the year: More industry partners than ever; new tools for practitioners; numerous publications; new funding, scholarships and awards; and welcoming new graduate students, visitors, and post-docs to our team.
