High-Tech Buildings - Market Transformation Project
High Tech industries that rely on buildings containing cleanrooms and laboratories are very important to Californias economy and have a large and growing influence upon Pacific Gas & Electric Companys service territory. PG&E, realizing the importance of these industries and the large potential for energy efficiency savings, contracted with Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) and Rumsey Engineers through the California Institute for Energy Efficiency (CIEE) to perform market transformation activities specifically targeted for energy intensive industrial buildings containing cleanrooms and laboratories. These activities have broad applicability to many of Californias industries and institutions. The industries utilizing these types of facilities include electronics (semiconductor, disc drive, flat panel display, and their suppliers), biotechnology, pharmaceutical, automotive, aerospace, health care, and foods.
