Buildings consumed 40% of the energy and represented 40% of the carbon emissions in the United States. This is more than any other sector of the U.S. economy, including transportation and industry. Enhancing building efficiency represents one of the easiest, most immediate and most cost effective ways to reduce energy consumption while keeping buildings sustainable and healthy. Dr. Zheng O’Neill and her research group are doing something about that.
