Report Outlines Breakthroughs in Energy Efficiency for Buildings.

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) released a new report showcasing numerous energy-saving products and technologies, made possible through DOE research and development, which are currently available in the market or projected to enter the marketplace in the future.
