A study led by Berkeley Lab researchers quantifies what can be done to make buildings more energy efficient and flexible in granular detail by both time (including time of day and year) and space (looking at regions across the U.S.).

Art Rosenfeld, a physicist and Berkeley Lab Distinguished Scientist Emeritus, transformed the fledgling field of energy efficiency from a research afterthought into a scientific discipline.

Berkeley Lab scientists discuss how advances in energy storage can help us prevent extreme weather-related blackouts, adopt more renewable energy, and build bigger, better, more environmentally responsible batteries.
