DOE Announces $34.5 Million In Funding For Building Technology R&D
May 9, 2018

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has announced up to $34.5 million in funding to support building technology research and development (R&D). Buildings are the single largest energy consuming sector in the U.S. economy, representing approximately 75 percent of the nation’s electricity use and 40 percent of its total energy demand, resulting in Americans spending nearly $400 billion each year to power homes, offices, schools, hospitals, and other commercial and residential buildings.

The Energy Department’s Building Technologies Office (BTO) is issuing two funding opportunities: Buildings Energy Efficiency Frontiers & Innovation Technologies (BENEFIT) 2018 and Solid-State Lighting Research. These funding announcements will further the Administration’s goal to drive U.S. technology leadership in solid-state lighting as well as develop innovative energy saving technologies, systems, tools, and models that could lead to significant reduction in building energy consumption by supporting innovative research in several topic areas.
