DOE Building Envelopes Roadmap
Presented by: Marc LaFrance
Date: Thursday, December 9, 2010
Time: 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
This presentation will highlight the key research and development areas that the U.S. Department of Energy is working on to achieve low energy buildings. The development of the next generation of windows that are highly insulated and have dynamic solar control are a major component of the overall strategy to achieve this goal. Integrated roof systems including phase change material, below roof deck ventilation, and radiant barriers, and moisture control can offer dramatic savings. These advanced research topics along with projects and technologies that are closer to the market will be discussed.
DOE will present its current research activities and priorities that have been documented in its multi-year plan. Participants will be able to provide key input to influence DOE’s decisions that may result in plans to conduct competitive solicitations for funding opportunities.
Results of our cool roof peer review activity will be presented and input on our draft cool roof roadmap will be sought. Finally a summary of our international activities on standards harmonization will be presented.
