Mining for Negawatts
The MIT community is conducting a great deal of exciting research related energy consumption in built environments. I will begin with a overview of some of the research projects at MIT, ranging from lighting to building controls. I will then do a deeper dive into research being conducted at the Field Intelligence Lab at MIT on the topic of negawatt mining. The term "negawatt" has come to indicate saved, or negative, watts from measures that reduce energy consumption. However, not all negawatts c
