Energy Department Announces 42 Million In Project Selections For Innovative Buildings Research
January 31, 2019

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced up to $42 million in project selections to support early-stage research and development (R&D) of innovative residential and commercial building technologies for energy efficiency.

Buildings use 75% of U.S. electricity and account for 40% of U.S. overall energy use. Energy efficiency is a key driver of overall economic efficiency and part of DOE’s mission to increase energy affordability and energy security. The technology developed from these early-stage R&D projects is designed to help consumers and businesses save energy costs and drive domestic economic competitiveness.

A total of 46 research teams were selected as a result of three fiscal year 2018 funding opportunity announcements (FOAs) issued by the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy’s Building Technologies Office. Major focus areas under each FOA include:

Buildings Energy Efficiency Frontiers & Innovation Technologies – 19 selections for $19.5 million

-Advanced separation technologies for dehumidification

-Innovative materials for thermal insulation

-High performance windows

-Advanced controls and automation in building energy management

-Innovative technologies using natural gas

Solid State Lighting – 11 selections for $11 million

-Core technology research for LEDs and organic LEDs (OLEDs)

-Proof-of-concept and prototype development for LEDs and OLEDs

-Advanced manufacturing R&D focuses on chemistry and physics of LED/OLED panel fabrication

Building America – 16 selections for $11.5 million

-Development and validation of high performance residential envelope systems that provide moisture management and validation of high performance envelope specifications for performance and durability

-Heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) installation and performance

-Gap analysis of building industry standard practices

For more information on the selections visit the Energy Department’s Building Technologies Office web site.
