The U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (LBNL) houses the Advanced Light Source (ALS), a particle accelerator that generates X-rays for research, and a dome that needed a new cover! Owens Corning™ Roofing Solutions recently gave the ALS a new cool roof, using their Duration® Premium COOL Roof Shingles. Cool roofs work by reflecting back the sun's rays, keeping the roof and building cooler, saving energy and money on cooling costs. It should be noted that scientists at LBNL actually developed the Cool Roofing Material Database in 2000, to aid in the selection of energy-efficient roofing systems. Check out the press release for more information.
