Chasing the Negawatt: Visualization for Sustainable Living
by Lyn Bartram, Johnny Rodgers, and Kevin Muise
Energy and resource management is an important and growing research area at the intersection of conservation, sustainable design, alternative energy production, and social behavior. A significant part of energy management involves the buildings we occupy. Advances in design, materials, and automation have resulted in more efficient buildings, and alternative energy sources have changed the role of buildings and their occupants from simple consumers to partial producers of energy. However, effective energy reduction strategies will require not only efficient buildings but also approaches that help occupants modify their energy use behaviors. Read More »
