Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, are working to take research innovations from their labs into the real world to cut commercial building energy consumption by close to a third, and give office workers an unprecedented sense of control over their thermal environments. Armed with a recently announced $1.6 million grant from the California Energy Commission, researchers from UC Berkeley's Center for the Built Environment (CBE) are refining, testing and promoting a new set of tools that will enable more efficient temperature control in buildings by using input from building occupants, a network of web-based applications, and a user-responsive Personal Comfort System (PCS).
