TC CHAN CENTER FOR BUILDING AND ENERGY STUDIES
The TC Chan Center is a faculty research and consulting unit located at Penn’s School of Design. The mission of the Center is to develop new knowledge, tools, processes, techniques and continuing education for professionals involved in building simulation and technology. The goal is to create healthier, productive, energy efficient strategies that will lead to high performance buildings and sustainable environments. The Center engages in the creation (research), application (consulting) and dissemination (communication) of knowledge. Faculty from different disciplines work at multiple scales to advance the understanding of complex technical, economic, social, and political arrangements with which sustainability can be achieved. From the detailed simulation of building performance to the management of large populations of buildings, the Center’s research teams develop new techniques and assist clients.
