Applied Acoustics & Sound Quality
Environmental noise is a worldwide problem. However, the way the problem is dealt with differs immensely from country to country and is very much dependent on culture, economy and politics. But the problem persists even in areas where extensive resources have been used for regulating, assessing and damping noise sources.LEARN MORE
Urban Energy Systems
Buildings are responsible for over 40% of the final energy demand in Europe and for nearly 40% of total CO2 emissions worldwide. Building consumptions depend mainly on building HVAC and electrical systems.
At the same time, population of urban areas is expected grow and reach almost 70% of the global population by 2050 according to UN forecasts.
These data show that energy efficiency for the building sector, especially in cities, is one of the modern challenges to reduce carbon emissions, global warming and environmental impact worldwide.
At BETALAB, we address this challenge by developing models for simulating the energy needs of cities and we deploy these models within computer simulations to find practical and sustainable solutions for public and private decision makers.
