Our friends at the Rhode Island Science and Technology Advisory Council (STAC) recently published this preview of OSCAR’s first major project in Providence: Green the Knowledge District. As part of the Energy & Environment collaboratory, Green the Knowledge District (or GKD) reflects OSCAR’s commitment to sharing research and knowledge for the benefit of all:
The project kicks off at 70 Ship Street, a Brown Medical School research building. Looking at a wide variety of data related to building use, energy use and materials use, among others, Brown’s Dr. Chris Bull will lead a team of students from Brown, URI and RISD in developing a template that can then be used to assess other buildings in the district “so we can compare one piece of property to another, one organization to another, and correlate this data with other places in the country.”
