Examining the urban microclimate effects on urban building energy uses in the city of Milwaukee

March 1 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm


Dissertation proposal presentation of Lulu Liu: Over-concentrated urban buildings and energy consumption have become one of the major reasons for the environmental deterioration in urban areas and can directly or indirectly cause urban microclimate changes. Energy consumption in urban areas has shown a rapid growth trend, and reducing the intensity of energy consumption in urban areas has attracted the attention of many scholars. Examining the impact of different spatiotemporal climate factors on energy consumption from the perspective of urban microclimate and their spatial patterns may provide valuable policy implications on urban building energy consumption. This study has three primary goals, including 1) estimating building energy consumption of the City of Milwaukee, WI using historical and future weather data, and verifying the accuracy of future energy demand predictions by comparing them to historical energy use data.; 2) examining the impact of microclimate factors on urban building energy consumption through correlation analysis and regression analysis on building and city scales; and 3) mapping future energy consumption demands over 30 years to visualize spatial and temporal differences.
