.... In this study, a modeled but actual large office building, simulated using New York City hourly electric prices, hourly CO_2e emissions rates, and weather data for the summer 2019 cooling season is based on these dynamic driving parameters. A joint optimization of a building's thermal mass and indoor CO 2...
