Buildings account for about 40 percent of our nation's energy use. Reducing the energy consumption of the nation's buildings and the resulting carbon emissions is essential for achieving a clean and sustainable energy future.
Researchers at Georgia Tech are focused on improving the energy efficiency and management of buildings and industrial facilities, while reducing their environmental footprint. Embracing an energy systems approach, the multi-disciplinary team of scientists, engineers, and architects integrate building technology innovations into broader planning for sustainable city and regional development.
