A smart way to predict building energy consumption

In a time of aging infrastructure and increasingly smart control of buildings, the ability to predict how buildings use energy—and how much energy they use—has remained elusive, until now.

Modeling every building in America starts with Chattanooga

Buildings use 40 percent of America's primary energy and 75 percent of its electricity, which can jump to 80 percent when a majority of the population is at home using heating or cooling systems and the seasons reach their ...

The future of 'extremely' energy-efficient circuits

Data centers are processing data and dispensing the results at astonishing rates, and such robust systems require a significant amount of energy—so much energy, in fact, that information communication technology is projected ...

Developing embedded systems faster

Whether for the car or the drone: Developing image processing software for embedded systems takes a lot of time and is therefore very expensive. Now the Tulipp platform makes it possible to develop energy-efficient embedded ...

Boosting the 'brains' of computers with less wasted energy

Many internal components used in today's computers reach temperatures that are hot enough to cook a Thanksgiving meal. The heat produced by the computations can easily burn human skin and tissue – and much of the heat is ...
