Strengthening the Built Environment

We work closely with industry, government and policy makers to inform and develop building technology and urban systems that increase energy efficiency, save money and improve health and safety for building occupants. We engage in innovative and creative research to advance energy efficiency in the built environment, one of the world's most critical energy and environmental challenges because buildings are the world's largest energy-users.
