Document Description
LBNL is proposing to construct a new 160,000 gross square foot, 4-story research facility that would house research programs focused on alternatives and renewable energy sources: the Helios research program and the Energy Biosciences Institute (EBI) research program. The Helios research program is a collaborative effort between LBNL and UC Berkeley that would conduct research to utilitize sunlight to generate efficient energy sources. The EBI is a grant-funded program through British Petroleum (BP) that would conduct research with BP partners, LBNL, UC Berkeley, and the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) and would focus research primarily on renewable biofuels for transportation and conversion of heavy hydrocarbons to clean fuels.
