For development of innovative building efficiency technologies. 
University of Florida is one of the two academic institutions that has received funding under this program as a primary awardee. 
The project is among 7 selected technologies with potential to dramatically reduce energy consumption in buildings. In 2013, energy consumption in buildings accounted for nearly 40 percent of all energy use in the U.S., an estimated cost of $413 billion.  
In the annoncement, Kathleen Hogan, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency stated that “These innovative approaches will improve smart-building technologies, including lighting, lighting controls, highly insulated walls and windows, as well as increase efficiency measures that complement a building’s entire energy management system.”
