Building Technologies Research and Integration Center (BTRIC)

Building Technologies Research and Integration Center (BTRIC), in the Energy & Transportation Science Division (ETSD), focuses on research, development, and deployment of energy efficient technologies in support of the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) goal of zero energy homes by 2020 and zero energy commercial buildings by 2025. BTRIC areas of focus are new building technologies, whole-building and community integration, and improved energy management in buildings and industrial facilities during their operational phase. A full-time staff of approximately 50 researchers conduct experiments in a DOE-designated National User Facility at Oak Ridge National Laboratory for the DOE and other sponsors, in collaboration with industry, universities, associations, and utilities.
