The US Department of Energy’s (DOE) Building Technologies Office (BTO), specifically through its Advanced Building Construction Initiative (ABC Initiative), supports and leverages technology and innovation to help modernize the US construction industry and make new and existing buildings part of the solution to meet US federal climate goals. BTO has funded 20 research, development, and demonstration (RD&D) projects. Of these, the 14 ABC Topic 1 awards focused on industrialized building solutions for retrofits.
This report introduces the ABC Initiative’s Topic 1 awards, summarizes each of the Topic 1 Phase I research teams (including their project work products and high-level findings), reviews the ABC Collaborative’s support of these teams, and provides a look-ahead to Phase II.
