Energy Efficient Buildings Hub
In 2010, the Greater Philadelphia region celebrated the award of $129M from the U.S. DOE, EDA and other federal agencies to create the Energy Efficient Buildings Hub (EEB) at The Navy Yard Smart Energy Campus. The EEB is a first-of-its-kind Energy-Regional Innovation Cluster (E-RIC) devoted to improving energy efficiency in buildings and promoting regional economic growth and job creation. Its comprehensive, innovative approach addresses issues of research, development and commercialization via established manufacturers, emerging enterprises, collaborative intellectual property management, workforce & education, and public policy. EEB, led by Penn State University, was selected through an aggressive national competition. This partnership to accelerate the regional innovation cluster represents more than 90 public, private and academic partners.
