Research cooperation Climate Change
The Borderstep Institute for Innovation and Sustainability is cooperating with the Bren School of Environmental Science and Management at the University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB) in a research project on climate change commissioned by the International Resource Panel (IRP) of the United Nations Environment Programme.
In collaboration with Prof. Sangwon Suh and Joe Bergensen of the Bren School, Borderstep is preparing estimates through 2050 of the global environmental impacts and CO2 abatement potentials that may result from the use of energy management in buildings.
An assessment model was developed for this purpose. It tracks resource use and savings achieved from energy management in buildings on the basis of scenarios and life-cycle data gathered during the project. The results of this study be summarized in an International Resource Panel report.
