Measuring Energy Efficiencies in Buildings: Connecting Goals with Metrics

Wednesday, May 25, 2011

For several years, the Green Buildings Discussion Group at the New York Academy of Sciences has been developing programs centered around zero energy buildings, post occupancy evaluations, and government policy. Monitoring and measuring energy usage has been a leitmotif and, over time, the complexities of communicating clearly have become more troublesome.

As such, we thought to bring together experts from both the architecture/engineering and the communications/graphic design communities to explore means and media for effectively communicating energy use both within the profession and to the public. Measuring Energy Efficiencies in Buildings focuses this ongoing conversation around the opportunities and challenges for changing behavior and monitoring and measuring efficiency gains in our built environment.

Our goal is to build consensus around the best strategies to employ when talking about energy usage in buildings in order to continually educate people about the challenges and opportunities that exist to improve them.

Sponsors: New York Academy of Sciences, Skanska, United Technologies, The Sallan Foundation
