EETD’s Rapid Building Energy Modeler Featured at the ARPA-E Showcase

Among the technologies featured at the ARPA-E Summit showcase in Washington D.C. this week was EETD’s Rapid Building Energy Modeler. Developed with UC Berkeley and Baumann Consulting, the technology will use a portable system of sensing and computer hardware to rapidly generate indoor thermal and physical building maps. Using cameras and laser scanners, the team will create a 3D visualization of walls, windows, floors, and other parts of buildings and use a computer model to predict how much energy the building should use. The showcase highlights ARPA-E awardees, entrepreneurs, and researchers ready to collaborate with investors and decision makers to move their ideas into the marketplace. More>
