Center Overview

The Center for Energy Efficiency Design (CEED) was founded in 2008 by the joint efforts of faculty in College of Engineering and the Institute for Energy Efficiency at the University of California, Santa Barbara. The CEED is one of the efforts that has been started in support of College Energy Efficiency Initiative, as a response to growing global concern for detrimental impact of wasteful energy spending. Additionally, the United States Congress has passed the Energy Independence and Security Act in 2007, the first energy legislation in decades, which introduced sweeping changes in energy efficiency standards. The mission of CEED is to merge expertise of researchers across engineering and science disciplines, and propose new methods for component and system design that would pursue energy efficiency from the very initial design plans through the entire life-cycle of the system.
