The Center for the Built Environment (CBE) at the University of California, Berkeley, has launched its Underfloor Air Technology Website at www.cbe.berkeley.edu/underfloorair. The purpose of the website is to provide a complete description of underfloor air distribution (UFAD) and related technologies.
The site is aimed at a broad audience and includes technical overviews explaining key issues, benefits and limitations; graphical tools highlighting basic concepts; detailed research summaries and publications; design guidelines for applying the technology; case studies of existing systems; and UFAD glossary and FAQs.
The high-profile equipment involves an efficient, resilient trigeneration plant to provide heating, cooling, and power service. However, UConn’s most critical asset may be its forward-thinking, campus-wide energy strategy. Read more stories in June Issue 2017.
