Building Technologies Research and Integration Center (BTRIC) focuses on research, development, and deployment of energy efficient technologies in support of the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) goal to maximize cost effective energy efficiency in homes and commercial buildings.
BTRIC focuses on four main areas:
- research and development of new materials, components and systems technologies for energy efficiency in buildings
- whole-building and community integration (energy efficiency, renewable energy, and to grid)
- improved energy management in existing buildings and industrial facilities during their operational phase
- market transformations from old to new in all of these areas
