Developing inexpensive, reliable, and low-carbon energy systems requires decarbonizing commercial, industrial, and residential structures. Understanding the fundamentals of energy efficiency, however, can be difficult due to its intimately linked technological, policy, and financial elements. Furthermore, while energy efficiency is a multibillion-dollar worldwide sector that is quickly developing, markets, and behavior are all changing.
Dian Grueneich and Stephen Comello, two of the world’s foremost energy efficiency specialists, discuss the principles and intricacies of building energy efficiency (BEE), including major technologies, policies, and financing instruments, in this course. You’ll learn how to evaluate a BEE intervention’s potential energy, cost, and non-energy advantages. You’ll learn about BEE’s next frontiers, such as “data-driven” intelligent efficiency, building decarbonization, and BEE’s involvement in global climate initiatives.
