Researchers in Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory's Environmental Energy Technologies Division (EETD) recently finished field-testing a "relocatable" classroom of their own design, intended to save energy and provide good indoor air quality. This last in a series of Science Beat articles on energy-efficient buildings looks at how energy costs can be reduced and air quality can be improved in these ubiquitous structures.
