PATH - A Public Private Partnership for Advancing Housing Technology

U.S. Department of Energy Laboratories

The U.S. Department of Energy Laboratories (DOE) Laboratories are America's leading energy research infrastructure. The DOE Labs are dedicated to a variety of energy-related research topics. The following are the most relevant to housing:

National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden, Colorado

Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Oak Ridge, Tennessee

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in Berkeley, California

Idaho National Engineering and Environmental Laboratory in Idaho Falls, Idaho

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Richland, Washington

DOE's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy coordinates the collaboration between PATH and DOE research laboratories. The Building Technologies program provides energy solutions for residential and commercial buildings including a toolbox with planning, finance, design, construction and renovation resources.

DOE's Emerging Technology program increases awareness and demand for new, highly efficient technologies while helping manufacturers and utilities bring the technologies to market. Many applied research projects in energy efficiency are supported through this effort and through the DOE's Building America and Rebuild America programs.

DOE also has a series of technology roadmaps, which complement PATH's roadmapping projects.
