Researchers at UC Berkeley's Center for the Built Environment (CBE) are working to take research innovations from their labs into the real world to cut commercial building energy consumption by close to a third, and give office workers an unprecedented sense of control over their thermal environments. The research initiative comes from a recently announced $1.6 million grant from the California Energy Commission and is supported by the campus’s Operational Excellence Energy Management Program.
