ACEEE Served for Building Efficiency
Summer Study draws visionaries focused on reducing climate impact of buildings
The ACEEE Summer Study on Energy Efficiency in Buildings continues to draw a diverse group of professionals from around the world—including a large contingent of PNNL researchers—to discuss building energy use and actions to reduce climate impacts. The Summer Study, held biennially, "enables sharing of ideas and dialog among leading thinkers, visionaries, and luminaries in the field."
This year, that field included more than 30 researchers from PNNL, representing their research on behalf of DOE’s Building Technologies Office.
Key roles at the Summer Study included participation on five panels, two of which were co-led by PNNL:
- Panel 1: Residential Buildings: Technologies, Design, Performance Analysis, Construction, and Building Industry Trends
- Panel 3: Commercial Buildings: Technologies, Design, Performance Analysis, Construction, and Building Industry Trends—co-led by Srinivas Katipamula
- Panel 5: Codes and Standards—co-led by Bing Liu
- Panel 8: Capturing Savings through Behavior
- Panel 12: Smart Buildings, Smart Grid, Information Technology
During the conference, ACEEE announced that Liu will serve as the conference co-chair for the 2018 Summer Study—the 20th biennial ACEEE conference on Energy Efficiency in Buildings—to be held at the Asilomar Conference Grounds in Pacific Grove, Calif.
“Chairing the ACEEE Summer Study provides a unique opportunity to influence the conference theme and topic areas,” said Liu. “I am looking forward to working with my co-chair and ACEEE staff to develop an excellent conference that will attract researchers who will share their bright ideas and actionable practices in advancing building and community energy efficiency.”
Liu leads PNNL’s Building Energy Regulatory Analysis group. She is also a program manager, directing PNNL work supporting the U.S. DOE’s Building Energy Codes Program.
