Buildings and Connected Systems
We transform the way building systems are designed, evaluated, operated, and integrated into surrounding communities. Our research provides the scientific basis for changes in national and state policies and organizational operating procedures. These changes drive advancements nationwide in building energy and water efficiency, as well as occupant productivity. For more information, download our flier.
We enhance the flexibility, security, and resilience of the nation’s electricity infrastructure. Our research and software tools enable industry to more efficiently operate the bulk power system, while leading advances in predictive analytics, cybersecurity of operational systems, and mitigation of potential hazards.
Optimization and Control
We develop control theory, optimization methods, and software tools to enhance the reliability, resilience, and efficiency of energy systems. These systems range from the electric power grid and buildings to transportation, all of which are central to the nation’s economy, security, and quality of life. Our data-driven control methods and optimization algorithms have been integrated into software tools and deployed and tested nationwide.
