DOE Invest $74M in Energy-Efficient Building and Construction Technologies

Feb. 18, 2020
Sixty-three projects were selected to research, develop and test energy-efficient innovations

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) recently announced that it has put $74 million toward 63 selected projects to research, develop and test energy-efficient and flexible building technologies, systems and construction practices to improve the energy performance of the nation’s buildings and electric grid. Awardees include National Laboratories, universities, small businesses and more.

According to the DOE, the U.S.’s 135 million residential and commercial buildings use more energy than any other sector in the nation, accounting for 40% of its energy use and 75% of its electricity consumption. The research partnerships announced will pursue new technologies to enhance the energy productivity of buildings and improve the capacity of buildings to operate more flexibly.
