The Building Technologies Research and Integration Center (BTRIC), in the Energy and Transportation Science Division ORNL, focuses on research and development of new building technologies, whole-building and community integration, improved energy management in homes and buildings during their operational phase, and market transformations from concept to commercialization in all of these areas.
The US Department of Energy (DOE) programs supported by BTRIC are primarily within the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) and include the
Building Technologies Office,
Federal Energy Management Program,
Weatherization and Intergovernmental Programs Office, and
Sustainability Performance Office.
BTRIC also supports other DOE-EERE offices, other DOE programs, other federal agencies, state agencies, and the private sector through Cooperative Research and Development Agreements (CRADAs) and DOE’s Work for Others (WFO) program and as a DOE-designated National User Facility.
