The first experiment in FLEXLAB, the Facility for Low Energy eXperiments in Buildings, began in May. Read about what developer Webcor has planned and how its work there will help improve a building the company is designing and constructing for its client, Genentech.
CalCharge, the collaboration between the Berkeley Lab's Environmental Energy Technologies Division and the California Clean Energy Fund to accelerate the growth of energy storage in the state, announced its first corporate partners.
You'll also read about EETD's usual array of leading edge research in such areas as harnessing the power of vehicle-to-grid services to help increase the penetration of renewable energy, measurements of the cost of saved energy (program administrator) through utility-funded energy efficiency programs, and how the Superior Energy Performance Program helps industry save money and energy.

EETD News reports on research conducted at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory's Environmental Energy Technologies Division, whose mission is to perform research and development leading to better energy technologies that reduce adverse energy-related environmental impacts. The Division's staff of nearly 400 conducts research on energy efficiency in buildings, indoor environmental quality, U.S. and international energy issues, and advanced energy technologies. The newsletter is published online once a quarter. For more information, contact Allan ChenAllan Chen, (510) 486-4210.
The Center for Building Science News was published between 1993 and 1998. It covered news of the Division's research in energy efficiency and buildings, the indoor environment, and energy analysis. You'll find all back issues, from Winter 1993 through Summer 1998, available here.
