About the Building Technolgies Program

Continuing the mission of promoting positive change through science and technology, FAS’s Building
Technologies Program works to mitigate climate change and advance social justice and environmental
responsibility through the building industry. Buildings are the leading consumer of electricity and energy
in our country, and energy production and use are responsible for 85 percent of human greenhouse gasses. With this in mind, the main focus of FAS’s work is to improve energy efficiency without sacrificing affordability and life safety. While current research trends are moving towards high‐tech solutions, such as solar power and phase changing materials, FAS has chosen to focus on developing static conservation technologies that are highly efficient, yet easily affordable.
