Decarbonizing Buildings for a Sustainable Energy Future

Join us on February 12 at 3:30 p.m. for this Sustainable Energy Seminar presentation by Dr. Joy Altwies, faculty associate/program director for the UW-Madison Office of Interdisciplinary Professional Programs.


When studying sustainable energy, it is tempting to focus on energy supply technologies and strategies. But where is all this energy going? And is it being used efficiently? This session will focus on two of the four major energy end-use sectors: commercial and residential buildings. Together these sectors consume over 40% of primary energy supplies. The presentation will discuss the role and impact of the building sector on energy and carbon emissions, sustainability strategies for new and existing buildings, and examples of real buildings that are reducing their environmental impact.


This event is offered both in-person at the Wisconsin Energy Institute and online through Zoom Webinar. If attending online, registration is required. Click here to register for this and all other webinars as part of the Sustainable Energy Seminar series in Spring 2024.
