Department of Building Energy Research Research
The Department of Building Energy Research develops policy and technology in support of the Korea government's Net Zero 2050 goals related to the climate change response. To create a unified platform for developing and implementing carbon neutrality policies, it develops zero-energy technology to reduce energy consumption by newly built structures, and researches schemes for "green remodeling" of existing buildings and the necessary technology. It reduces and optimizes energy consumption through technology that enables ICT-enhanced management of zero-energy buildings and energy lifecycle management of buildings. The Department of Building Energy Research is developing a green remodeling platform that operates on the public data and construction energy technology needed to create zero-energy buildings and cities, just two highlights of its efforts in creating the carbon-free circular economy the world needs.
