Theme B: Smart Technologies for Agile, Intelligent, Efficient and Resilient Buildings

This theme aims to develop and integrate smart technologies to realize our vision of intelligent, adaptive and agile buildings. The research focuses on: (a) support the diverse and uncertain demands of occupants while minimizing energy usage, (b) enable intelligent and energy efficient control of the air-conditioning and mechanical ventilation (ACMV) and lighting systems, (c) adaptively manage the distributed energy resources such as energy storage, renewables, back-up generators and flexible load demand to assure resilience, and (d) interface with the utility grid to provide value-added ancillary services from communities of buildings.
