The 40th anniversary of the founding of the Environmental Energy Technologies Division at Berkeley Lab was November 1, 2013.
Thursdays in November, we’ll look back at a significant energy-efficient technology developed by EETD and its research partners.
In the late 1970s, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) led the effort to develop DOE-2, the computer program that has since been the standard in the U.S. and in common use internationally. DOE-2 calculates hourly building energy use and cost from information about the building's construction, climate, operation, utility rate schedule, and heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning systems. Berkeley Lab has recently led the development of the next-generation energy-simulation program for buildings called EnergyPlus.
