    Since buildings consume 75% of electricity in the U.S., they offer great potential for saving energy and reducing the demands on our rapidly changing electric grid. But how much, where, and through which strategies could better management of building energy use actually impact the electricity system?
    A comprehensive new study led by researchers from the Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory answers these questions, quantifying what can be done to make buildings more energy efficient and flexible in granular detail by both time and space. The research team, which also...
