Every year, more than 12% of all domestic energy is used to condition spaces for occupant comfort. Yet, more office occupants are dissatisfied (42%) than satisfied (38%) with their thermal environment. Building-scale solutions fail to address the underlying issue with dissatisfaction: different people prefer different thermal conditions at any given time.
The DELTA project addressed this problem by building a suite of wirelessly-powered personal comfort devices. Designs were based on human-subject testing and FEA Simulations.
