Building Energy Efficiency and Management (BEEAM) Laboratory
Dr. Kevin Martin and Dr. William Mills, professors in the Department Engineering and Engineering Technology, lead the Building Energy Efficiency and Management (BEEAM) laboratory.
Students and faculty working with this lab focus on building energy efficiency through research on building technologies including lighting systems, variable frequency drives (VFDs), and solar photovoltaic energy resources.
The BEEAM laboratory is used to teach students energy auditing concepts and to research spectrally enhanced lighting and LED luminaire design, application specific energy reductions from VFDs, and passive solar tracking system.
