HVAC & CHP
Center for Environmental Engineering (CEEE)
The Center for Environmental Energy Engineering (CEEE) is working with industry to increase HVAC and CHP efficiency. The Center is a leader in research and education in environmentally responsible, economically feasible integrated energy conversion systems for buildings and transportation. Research focuses in particular on air-conditioning, refrigeration and heat pumping and integrated cooling heating and power systems. The Center also provides software for the design and analysis of such systems with integrated optimization capabilities for lowest cost and best performance. The center operates four consortia based on the research pursued by each group. The consortia are Alternative Cooling Technologies & Application (ACTA), Integrated Systems Optimization (ISOC), Small Autonomous Energy Systems (SAES), Advanced Heat Exchanger/Electronic Cooling (AHX/EC).
