• Since 2015, fellows have collaborated with more than 60 Berkeley Lab scientists, and the organizations they’ve founded have raised more than $150 million in follow-on funding, hired more than 135 employees, and introduced new products across industries

  • Our pioneering indoor air quality and smart ventilation research identified thirdhand smoke as a health hazard and is making indoor spaces safer and more healthy for building occupants.

  • Working closely with other National Labs, the government and industry, our cutting edge battery and energy storage research helps to build better, more energy-efficient batteries.

  • Our scientists are developing methods of applying fault detection and diagnostics to buildings to rapidly diagnose problems that need to be fixed, improving energy efficiency and comfort for occupants.

  • We research how buildings use energy, their energy consumption patterns, energy efficiency standards and indoor air quality in our Energy Analysis and Environmental Impacts Division. 

  • We're improving grid storage capability for energy from renewable sources, researching smart-grid real-time monitoring and response and improving electricity distribution reliability in our Energy Storage and Distributed Resources Division. 

  • The Facility for Low Energy eXperiments allows users to develop and test energy-efficient building and grid technologies
