Energy efficiency at the University of Toronto: An investigation of four case study buildings.

Published 2006 .
Written in English.

About the Book

This thesis examines the dominating factors, process and tools that affect the consideration and implementation of new buildings at the University of Toronto. It approaches the topic from three different theoretical viewpoints: diffusion of innovation theory, social factors affecting diffusion of energy efficiency, and process and tools (such as the integrated design process and building energy simulation tools). Four recently constructed campus buildings are used as practical case studies. By using a building checklist, taking a tour, and conducting interviews, the results illustrate some extent of energy efficiency consideration. However, for U of T to be truly innovative, several improvements must be made to the overall building design process, the hired architects and consultants, and the extent of the university's commitment and leadership.
