Through a cooperative agreement with the electrical utility NSTAR, MIT will be rewarded for each efficiency improvement that can be documented. You are asked to pick one building or wing of an existing building on campus and focus on one or two particular inefficient energy features such as exits doors. You are asked to access the current energy use, develop redesigns of components or operations that substantially improve energy efficiency and predict the energy savings and economics of these new designs. The new concepts should an outstanding sustainable design that is also financially sound. In Design Projects 1 and 2 you are asked to select a building and propose and assess innovative building designs, technologies and operating schemes that will yield an outstanding sustainable building. For Design Project 1 you should first collect basic information about the sustainable building....
