Cooling a Warming Planet:  What Homes in Texas and New York Can Teach Us About Cooling Demand Around the Globe

In this paper, Pecan Street draws on our network of volunteer research participants to examine cooling loads in different parts of the United States. Our data shows that cooling loads differ based on location, building characteristics, cooling systems, and human behavior. Understanding how these factors interact will be crucial to managing cooling load growth over the next several decades. With supportive policy and innovative technology, the greenhouse gas emissions from increased cooling can be minimized.
