DOE Invests $14M in Building Efficiency Technologies
The US Energy Department announced up to $14 million in funding for 15 research and development projects to support energy-efficiency technologies for commercial and residential buildings. The investments are cost-shared with a $3 million investment from industry.
Seven incubator projects will be funded with nearly $6 million to improve heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), water heating, sensors and controls and building energy modeling. Additionally, eight frontier projects will receive $8 million to address energy efficiency in advanced clothes dryers, windows and building thermal insulation. Frontier projects seek to improve the efficiency of existing technologies by incorporating new, innovative materials or components.
