The Laboratory of Energy Efficiency in Buildings (Laboratório de Eficiência Energética em Edificações) was created in the year 1996 and is tied to the Construction Research Center, from the Department of Civil Engineering of the Federal University of Santa Catarina (UFSC). It aims at reducing, specifically, energy consumption in new buildings and existing ones. It achieves that through the implantation of new lighting, air conditioning, and thermal perfomance technologies without, however, reducing comfort levels.
