Saint-Gobain Joins U.S.-China Clean Energy Research Program

Saint-Gobain has been selected to join the U.S. Department of Energy’s U.S.-China Clean Energy Research Center for Building Energy Efficiency (CERC BEE). This CERC, one of three in the U.S., is dedicated to advancing energy efficiency in buildings in the U.S. and China.

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.

“We are pleased to have been selected to participate in this important venture and firmly believe that this partnership will make important strides toward mitigating the impact of buildings on the environment,” said Gilles Colas, president and CEO of Saint-Gobain North America. “As the leader in sustainable habitat, Saint-Gobain is wholeheartedly committed to inventing solutions to help professionals and communities around the world build and renovate comfortable, healthy, cost-efficient, and durable buildings. We are proud to help lead the fight against climate change through responsible manufacturing practices and the development of sustainable building products that offer greater energy efficiency.”
