"Lowering Green House Gas Emission through Better Buildings -- What is Possible?"
Prof. John Scofield
Buildings offer the greatest opportunity for efficiency gains. An intensive national effort to fully deploy existing, cost-effective technologies could substantially reduce our nationís energy consumption and GHG emission at significantly lower cost than any other option. Moreover, research and development into promising technologies can provide a steady stream of energy savings through efficiency for years to come.
These are the issues I will address in my talk from the perspectives of a physicist.
