Quantifying Projected Co-Benefits of Building Energy Efficiency
Researchers at Boston University SPH, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and Oregon State University have developed a new methodology for quantifying the projected health and climate benefits from making buildings more energy-efficient. This valuable new tool, known as CoBE (Co-benefits of the Built Environment), “can put a monetary value on the health benefits of emissions reductions.” says study coauthor and CoBE project co-principal investigator Jonathan Buonocore, assistant professor of environmental health.
