Energy Studies in Buildings Laboratory (ESBL) at the University of Oregon provides tools and expertise to aid in the design of more efficient buildings and communities. Research is focused around how buildings, related transportation, land use systems, climate, and human behavior determine energy and resource use.
Oregon BEST supports a network of nine shared-user research facilities at Oregon State University, Portland State University, and the University of Oregon. These multi-million dollar labs offer our industry partners access to research tools, faculty expertise, and workforce development opportunities. The labs help Oregon businesses compete while helping universities grow research and educate graduates.
