AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

Do residential energy efficiency measures improve physical and mental health?

Goal: Identify and quantify health benefits of energy efficiency measures in single- or multi-family housing.


Data tools: Resident surveys, air pollution monitors, temperature monitors, energy usage data from electric utilities.


Expected outcomes: Previous qualitative and quantitative work suggests residents of more energy efficient homes experience fewer cardiovascular symptoms (e.g., asthma attacks) and fewer exposures to unhealthy temperature extremes.
