15:30 Keynote: A computational approach to energy-efficient buildings (60 min)
Buildings account for 40% of the nation's total energy budget usage, and 70% of the nations electricity. Conservation efforts typically focus on physical building retrofits, such as insulation, solar panels, LED lighting, etc. However, these solutions cost thousands of dollars even for small buildings, and often don't make financial sense. In this talk, we will discuss new "smart building" approaches that use embedded sensing, intelligence, and control to save energy with a much smaller monetary investment. Our preliminary results indicate a 28% reduction in heating and cooling costs of homes with only $25 in sensors.
Speaker Bio:Kamin Whitehouse works in the area of wireless sensor networks, focusing on software design and applications in energy conservation. He has been an assistant professor in the Computer Science Department at the University of Virginia since 2006, and was awarded a CAREER award by the NSF. He earned his bachelor's degrees from Rutgers University and his MS and Ph.D. from UC Berkeley.
