Abstract

This project analyzed the energy usage of Worcester Polytechnic Institute’s Kaven Hall, and examined various improvements that would efficiently provide a comfortable climate for learning. These improvements were ranked based on various factors, such as energy efficiency, comfort, and cost. The methods used to determine improvements were described in detail, so that a similar process could be applied to other buildings in need of indoor climate improvements.
