    Berkeley, CA

  • "Background Image"


The Solar Energy Research Center, which is expected to be complete by the end of 2014, will consume approximately 40,000 square feet with an estimated construction cost of $54.4 million. The center will house approximately 75 people and will allow the research facility to develop the science and technology needed to create future transportation fuels from sunlight. The building will have a targeted goal of being LEED Silver, with a focus on energy efficiency. The facility will be designed using renewable or recyclable materials to the maximum extent possible, along with a “green” roof that will maximize natural light.
