It all started during the 1973 energy crisis, when scientists from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, a U.S. Department of Energy laboratory managed by the University of California, began to explore ways to improve energy efficiency in buildings and industry. Since then, Berkeley Lab has become a world leader in developing technologies and standards that have slashed energy costs by billions of dollars and helped bring energy-efficient products to your home. That same drive to bring energy efficiency to all facets of our lives continues today.
