Global warming is a common problem in the world, and we need to reduce the large amount of CO2 exhaust as soon as possible. And energy depletion is also one of important social issues. We need to find the solution before the point of no return.
Energy consumption in buildings is about one third of all energy consumption. The achievement of energy conservation in buildings is one of the high-priority issues that should be accomplished by several decades.
We are researching about the design method of optimal energy system with fuel cells in houses, the optimal operation method for the air-conditioning system in buildings, ideal energy system in cities using GIS, and so on. Behavior change method for energy conservation is also one of our interested research topic.
