To foster interdisciplinary collaboration to increase energy efficiency, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and improve indoor environmental quality in new and existing buildings.
- Quantifying the impacts of new and existing buildings on energy use, the indoor and outdoor environment, and human health
- Maximizing energy efficiency, renewable energy integration, and indoor environmental quality through design, construction, and operation
- Translating these outcomes to industry practitioners
