3M Joins US-China Building Energy Efficiency Consortium
3M has been selected as a partner in the US-China Clean Energy Research Center (CERC) Building Energy Efficiency consortium. CERC was established in 2009 by President Barack Obama and President Hu Jintao.
As part of the consortium, 3M will participate in research on building efficiency strategies, tools and practices in areas such as building envelope technologies and integration of new construction materials for building energy efficiency.
The US contingent of the CERC Building Energy Efficiency consortium is led by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and currently includes several other industrial partners, including Dow Chemical Company, Lutron Electronics and C3 Energy.
Among other projects, the consortium will collaborate during the remaining years of its charter on a number of demonstration buildings in China to incorporate 3M energy efficiency technologies and to study these products at work in various Chinese environments as well as with locally-sourced Chinese building components.
