Better tools to simulate building energy use, new funding for advanced research in batteries and energy-efficient buildings, and a look back at energy savings in The New York Times' new headquarters building are just a few of the topics we look at in this packed Winter 2013 issue of EETD News.
EETD is pleased to be part of the latest U.S. Department of Energy hub, the Joint Center for Energy Storage Research, JCESR, just as we are pleased to be funded by the Advanced Research Projects—Energy agency of DOE to develop new, highly innovative technologies for buildings and the electric grid.
We also report on the construction of the FLEXLAB testbeds, and describe the work that facility's first four partners will be or already are doing with FLEXLAB.
We round out the issue with articles on the insurance industry's work to address climate change, the growth of energy-efficiency programs in the U.S., and the latest California Energy Future report.

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.
