Population Impact Assessment Modeling Framework

Purpose 

The Population Impact Assessment Modeling (PIAM) Framework approach applies physics-based simulation model(s) to calculate one or more environmental or energy performance parameters for each home in a sample cohort selected or developed to represent a population. Results from the individual homes are compiled to provide the statistics for population impacts. The approach can be applied at varying temporal or spatial scales.

Audience 
Currently used by LBNL staff to address specifc policy questions. Future development of the model will hopefully include use by policy makers outside of LBNL
Developer(s) 
Indoor Environment Group/Residential Building Systems Group at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
