Consortium for Building Energy Innovation - CBEI

Solving Regional Energy Innovation

The Consortium for Building Energy Innovation (CBEI) is a U.S. Department of Energy Innovation Hub located at The Navy Yard, funded with a five-year, $129 million renewable federal grant, and also supported by three other federal agencies and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. CBEI is a 27-member consortium focused on solving energy efficiency challenges by designing and deploying proven, economically viable technologies that significantly reduce energy consumption in the nation’s commercial buildings, while also promoting regional economic growth and job creation. “The Department of Energy chose The Navy Yard for CBEI due to its campus-wide commitment to energy innovation and deployment,” notes Hank Foley, Executive Director.
