Given the urgency of climate change, development of fast and reliable methods is essential to understand urban building energy use in the sector that accounts for 40% of total energy use in USA. Although machine learning (ML) methods may offer promise and are less difficult to develop, discrepancy in methods, results, and recommendations have emerg...
Achieving citywide building energy reduction goals require extensive understanding of energy use at scale, which is challenging due to scarce and disparate data. Despite attention to urban building energy models (UBEM), unexplored aspects and missing details in this emerging field have remained, including further exploring non-homogenous commercial...
Recruitment, retention, and preparation of students in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields are critical to meeting the global challenges of the 21st century. Gamification—game playing concepts used in another activity—has been postulated as an active teaching strategy that engages students, encourages a sense of community, and...
Buildings account for the largest share of accumulated materials and waste. Tracking material composition, quantity, and location of these materials, known as building material stock analysis (MSA), is a first step enabling the reuse or repurposing of materials, key strategies of the circular economy. While the number of building MSAs is growing, t...
Research has predicted that the global population shift from rural to urban areas in the 21st century will cause haphazard building and infrastructure development in cities (Reinhart et al., 2016; United Nations, 2014). According to the US Department of Energy, the building sector is responsible for nearly 40% of total US energy consumption (USDOE,...
The United Nations has predicted a fast pace of worldwide migration into urban areas by the year 2030 that may result in arbitrary growth of cities, leading to adverse environmental impacts and unplanned energy use. As building sector consumes more energy compared to other sectors, understanding urban building energy use is critical to aid in energ...
