Cutting-edge technical solutions improve the energy efficiency of buildings.
NREL's buildings research teams lead efforts in developing cutting-edge technical solutions to improve the energy efficiency of both residential and commercial buildings, and to accelerate the integration of clean energy technologies with buildings.
NREL's commercial buildings research focuses on providing large institutional and private sector commercial building owners with tools, resources, and expertise to address energy challenges. In residential buildings, NREL researchers explore energy efficiency options for both new and existing homes, including whole-house performance and the interaction of building components.
