Sustainable Building Technologies
Fraunhofer Center for Sustainable Energy Techniques
Found in the heart of Boston’s Innovation District, the Living Laboratory is home to Fraunhofer CSE’s Massachusetts R&D center when it comes to development of renewable energy systems. Created away from a 2013 energy-retrofit of a 100-year-old building, the Lab leverages cutting-edge design principles and historic design alongside in-house study services, including a pilot solar component fabrication range, committed thermal screening laboratory, and considerable characterization/environmental assessment sources.
Building background: From the very first stone laid into the full overhaul in 2013, uncover the tale behind 5 Channel Center and just how it came into existence Massachusetts’s Center for Sustainable Energy techniques.
Techniques & Features: The lifeline of the Lab – a number of energy-efficient systems, materials and steps work together to create considerable reductions in whole-building power consumption.
Building Technology Showcase Exhibit: Open to people, the Lab’s first-floor offers an interactive educational display that is built to display new technologies to facilitate the widespread use of commercial and domestic energy-saving technologies.
The Living Laboratory is an item associated with the Building Technology Showcase, a collaboration of partners from leading building industry producers and organizations whom offered money and donated energy-efficient methods, materials and services towards the task.
