Our goal is to connect the academic and professional worlds of sustainability research. The mission of the T. C. Chan Center is to develop new knowledge, tools, processes, techniques and continuing education for professionals involved in building energy and technology. The goal is to create healthier, productive, energy efficient strategies that will lead to high performance buildings and sustain(able) environments. The T.C. Chan Center was founded by Professor Ali Malkawi in 2006 at the University of Pennsylvania with initial support by Mr. David Chan, a philanthropist from Hong Kong. The Center began with a partnership with Tsinghua University in Beijing and since then it has grown.
