Breaking New Ground
Capabilities And Apparatus
Oak Ridge National Laboratory scientists have devised a method to control the heating and cooling systems of a large network of buildings for power grid stability—all while ensuring the comfort of occupants.
3D Printing Molds
The construction industry may soon benefit from 3D printed molds to make concrete facades, promising lower cost and production time.
Buildings – Inside Out
Improving Energy Performance of Buildings
Vacuum insulation technology called modified atmosphere insulation, or MAI, could be a viable solution for improving the energy performance of buildings, based on a study by Oak Ridge National Laboratory and industry partners.
ORNL tech helps neighborhood get smart about energy
Alabama Power Smart Neighborhood
