The U.S.-India Joint Center for Building Energy Research & Development (CBERD)


Decades of collaboration and co-operation across several diverse fields have forged a deep friendship and understanding between the world’s two largest democracies, the United States of America (U.S.) and India. In 2009, the then Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and U.S. President Barack Obama leveraged the success of historic partnerships and signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), the U.S.-India Partnership to Advance Clean Energy (PACE). Through the PACE- Research program, a new five-year joint U.S. India Center for Building Energy Research and Development (CBERD) was created to advance buildings energy efficiency in both nations.
