Building Energy Efficiency

Researchers, in close cooperation with industry, develop technologies for buildings that increase energy efficiency while improving the comfort, health, and safety of building occupants.

Building Energy Efficiency

For decades, Berkeley Lab has provided leadership in researching ways to make buildings more energy efficient, cost-effective, comfortable, and healthy. We work with industry, government, and policymakers on research including commercial and residential design, building occupant behavior, demand-response, and many other areas.
