New Energy Bill Could
Support SC Funding

On Monday, President Bush, flanked by New Mexico Senator and Chairman of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, Pete Domenici, and Secretary of Energy Sam Bodman, signed into law the first comprehensive energy legislation since 1992. Of particular interest to Berkeley Lab is the authorization of increased funding for DOE's Office of Science. For more detail on the research and development provisions of the bill go to a briefing prepared by American Association of the Advancement of Science.

EETD Continues Work With Times Building

The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority will fund additional work on a project to develop and test energy-efficient technologies and operational practices for the new headquarters building of the New York Times Company. Environmental Energy Technologies Division scientists are producing results from previous testing of automated shading and daylighting controls for the building. In the next phase, the researchers will develop commissioning procedures and test protocols to ensure that the installed automated shading and daylighting controls for the building meet the owner's specifications. A description of the research is here, and the project website is here.
