Math, computational science & green buildings: a video from AN10

Buildings consume nearly 40% of the world’s energy, significantly more than either the transportation or industrial sectors. Any comprehensive plan to reduce atmospheric carbon must include actions to reduce energy consumption in the building sector. At SIAM’s Annual Meeting, Dr. Clas Jacobson of United Technologies Research Center spoke about the current understanding of the options available to reduce energy use in buildings and highlighted the role of mathematics and particularly computational science in delivering low energy buildings to the market in cost-effective ways. Watch a video of our interview with him along with clips from his presentation:
