Cool is, well, cool.
And in an era where going green is everything, count Los Alamos National Laboratory in.
Under a DOE program, the lab will be adding “cool roof” technologies — using lighter-colored roofing surfaces or special coatings to reflect the sun’s heat.
The result? Less urban heat, more efficiencies, reduced cooling costs and offsetting carbon emissions.
The announcement came Tuesday from U.S. Department of Energy Secretary Steven Chu.
