• Berkeley Lab scientists are developing methods of applying Fault Detection and Diagnostics to rapidly diagnose problems in buildings and inform human operators what needs to be fixed.

  • BTUS works closely with industry to develop technologies for buildings that increase energy efficiency while improving the comfort, health, and safety of building occupants.

  • EAEI researches energy use, including studying energy consumption patterns and energy efficiency standards and indoor air quality.

  • ESDR researches ways to provide the electricity grid with storage capability for energy from renewable sources; real-time monitoring and response for the "smart grid"; and technologies for improved electricity distribution reliability.

  • The Facility for Low Energy eXperiments in Buildings (FLEXLAB®) allows users to test energy-efficient building systems, before buildings are built.
