Efficient and Healthy Schools campaign
The Efficient and Healthy Schools campaign aims to engage K-12 schools to improve energy performance and indoor air quality, with a focus on practical solutions involving HVAC and other technologies to reduce energy use and carbon emissions. This campaign is led by the U.S. Department of Energy with organizing partners: the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Education (ED) with technical support from Berkeley Lab.
We use a multidisciplinary approach to study the indoor environment effects on occupant outcome and building energy use. Researchers in our Group have backgrounds in engineering, sciences, economics, statistics and public health. We aim to improve the understanding of pollutants that impact the built environment, and energy-efficient strategies to better indoor air quality.
