Smart Labs Accelerator Toolkit
A key goal of the Better Buildings Smart Labs Accelerator was to help organizations optimize the performance of their laboratories by mitigating safety and health risks, reducing energy, and improving ventilation. Based on the input, real-world experience, and insights from partners, DOE has compiled this toolkit. It is set up as a step-by-step guide and is easy to use. Each step of the toolkit contains additional tasks, resources, and deliverables that guide your organization through a systems-based management approach.
