Achieving Urban Infrastructure Efficiencies Through Building Networks

Thursday, Mar 24, 2011

To realize the full urban potential for deep energy reductions, look at networks of buildings in the urban landscape instead of aggregations of individual buildings. Buildings and urban infrastructure can be designed to interact, using underlying smart ICT infrastructures to share information and better manage energy distribution within a defined energy network, locally or regionally. Interactions can be creatively optimized between electricity generation, power consumption, thermal loads, water usage, and waste flows, to create overall aggregate performance and reduced environmental footprint far beyond what could be realized by individual "green" buildings. We need to envision future systems of buildings that harness the design and systems capabilities of each building to work together to create an infrastructure that performs far more efficiently than what we have today. Some examples of these concepts include load-coordination for demand response, thermal load networks enabling co-generation, heat recovery from waste water.
