Smart Grid Lab

Smart Grid Lab at Syracuse University is used to simulate sun and wind to integrate these new power sources into the smart grid system. SU uses the lab to offer courses in power systems, power engineering, small grid systems and power electronics to educate the electrical engineers of the future.


The Building Envelope Systems Test Laboratory (BEST)

The Building Envelope Systems Test (BEST) Lab at Syracuse University is a research and development facility designed to monitor the performance of air barriers — systems of materials, such as wall assemblies, that control unintended air movement in and out of buildings. Results here.


The Intelligent Control of Urban and Built Environments (ICUBE)

The Intelligent Control of Urban and Built Environments (ICUBE) test bed enables researchers to study and document how to improve environmental quality and energy efficiency in “built” environments, such as offices, schools, homes and surrounding urban settings. The test bed allows researchers to study the office environment and its energy burden under real-world conditions, rather than in a test chamber setting, as is normally done.


Field Demonstration Sites

Field demonstration sites in Syracuse, NY have been used since 2007 for SyracuseCoE to collaborate with community partners to conduct feasibility studies and field demonstration projects at more than 60 sites, including homes, commercial buildings, and whole neighborhoods.
