Global Building Network: Health + Energy Efficiency 101: Key Concepts and Questions at the Nexus of Health, Energy, and the Built Environment

This session will help researchers and practitioners focused on energy and the built environment understand how these areas relate to individual and community health, from climate change to in-home wellness. The session will also provide an overview of emerging opportunities to leverage these links, including the potential to more comprehensively serve vulnerable populations and to braid funding streams between the health, energy, and housing sectors. Highlighted topics may include an overview of stakeholders at this nexus, case studies of existing programs successfully implementing some of these concepts, and areas in which the research community could contribute to advancing the evidence base for work in this evolving space.
