Speaker Abstract: 

"Decarbonization of buildings: Strategies integrating energy sufficiency, efficiency, flexibility, and resiliency"

Globally buildings consume more than one-third of primary energy and produce more than one-third of GHG emissions. Decarbonizing the building sector is essential to achieving global carbon-neutral economy. This talk illustrates strategies to decarbonize buildings that integrate four interacting aspects of energy sufficiency, energy efficiency, energy flexibility, and energy resiliency.
