Thursday Night Lectures - Craig Roussac - The Fastest Way to Cut Building Emissions

By The University of Sydney

April 11, 2013

6:30 p.m. - 8 p.m.

ALT1, Wilkinson Building, 148 City Road, The University of Sydney, NSW 2006

Faculty of Architecture, Design & Planning, The University of Sydney

Craig Roussac will talk about his research on how we can empower building operators by giving them an unprecedented understanding of how their buildings use energy. While the opportunity to reduce emissions from buildings through technology investments was quantified by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change in its Fourth Assessment Report (AR4), non-technological options to reduce energy use were not assessed. Roussac’s research indicates there is significant potential for information-based approaches to deliver cost-effective solutions to energy management in buildings which need to be accounted for in government policy on Greenhouse Gas reduction.

Craig is a director and co-founder of Buildings Alive and is responsible for the company’s operations and strategic direction. He was previously director of the Investa Sustainability Institute's program of action research for sustainability in the built environment while he was working for Investa Property Group as the general manager with responsibility for the sustainability, safety and environmental management platforms. Craig has a longstanding interest in energy and buildings and is a PhD candidate at the University of Sydney in the Architectural Science discipline. His primary research interest is in how technologies and non-technological factors can combine to achieve significant greenhouse gas emission reductions from the operation of buildings.

All welcome.
