Who We Are


The U.S. – China Clean Energy Research Center Building Energy Efficiency Consortium (CERC-BEE) was initiated between the United States and China and formally established by protocol between the U.S. Department of Energy and Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology in 2009.  Achievements include improved energy efficiency in new and existing buildings, reduced greenhouse gas emissions, increased indoor comfort, and reduced stress on the electric grid.  CERC-BEE R&D teams are comprised of U.S. national laboratories, and U.S. and Chinese universities, research institutes, and industry partners.  Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory leads the U.S. participation in the program.
