Energy Efficiency Indicators for High Electric-Load Buildings

February 6, 2003 - 12:00pm
Bldg. 90
Seminar Host/Point of Contact: 

Energy per unit of floor area is not an adequate indictor for energy efficiency in high electric-load buildings. For two activities, restaurants and computer centres, alternative indicators for energy efficiency are discussed. Prerequisites in order to be able to use these indicators in energy efficiency programmes are discussed. The opportunity of an internationally coordinated research activity is also presented. Since 1999, Dr. Bernard Aebischer has served as a senior scientist at CEPE (Centre for Energy Policy and Economics) of the Swiss Federal Institutes of Technology. Prior to this, Dr. Aebischer was a scientist in the Energy Analysis Research Group and lecturer at ETH Zurich and in 1990 at IUED (Graduate Institute of Development Studies) at Geneva University. Other research areas of interest include working with analysis and modeling of electricity demand in the commercial sector, perspectives for long-term energy demand in the commercial sector, instruments for promoting rational energy use, evaluation of the impact of policy measures, and the improvement of national energy statistics.
