The CERC BEE features a consortium led by Lawrence Berkley National Laboratory that includes Oak Ridge National Laboratory and industry research partners, such as Saint-Gobain.

In its role as an industrial research partner of the CERC BEE, Saint-Gobain will work collaboratively with CERC BEE research labs, share the company’s expertise in building science, provide technical support, offer access to the company’s research facilities, and supply materials, equipment and more.

Saint-Gobain subsidiary CertainTeed will kick off the CERC partnership by working on two key research projects in the area of cool roofs and insulation materials.

Research in the areas of glass facade systems, solar integration and data monitoring in energy efficiency are being explored as possible projects to be undertaken by other Saint-Gobain companies as part of the CERC partnership.
