Visible to the public Cognitive Green Building- A Holistic Cyber-Physical Analytic Paradigm for Energy Sustainability

This research project aims to develop a comprehensive analytical foundation for designing green buildings. In particular, the PIs focused on three interrelated thrust areas: (i) Integrated energy management for a single-building, where the goal is to jointly consider the complex interactions among building subsystems. The PIs developed novel control schemes that opportunistically exploit the energy demand elasticity of the building subsystems and adapt to occupancy patterns, human comfort zones, and ambient environments.

Visible to the public Cognitive Green Building: A Holistic Cyber-Physical Analytic Paradigm for Energy Sustainability

Abstract:

Buildings in the U.S. contribute to 39% of energy use, consume approximately 70% of the electricity, and account for 39% of CO2 emissions. Hence, developing green building architec- tures is an extremely critical component in energy sustainability. The investigators will develop a unified analytical approach for green building design that comprehensively manages energy sustainability by taking into account the complex interactions between these systems of systems, providing a high degree of security, agility and robust to extreme events.
