The following research is in conjunction with the objectives of the Energy Efficient Buildings Hub (EEB Hub) program created in February 2011. Established and funded by the United States Department of Energy, the program is designed to promote deep retrofits to commercial buildings in order to reduce the building’s energy consumption by 50% and promote economic savings. The program is comprised of various research universities, Department of Energy (DOE) laboratories, industrial firms and economic development agencies all working together to improve energy efficiency within the commercial sector. EEB Hub’s objectives include the overall reduction of energy consumption by the commercial sector through the process of advanced retrofits to the buildings. These retrofits will be determined based on the modeling platforms created by projects, such as those listed below, to determine which technologies will achieve the maximum energy savings and the highest economic return.
