A 70-year-old vacant recreation building at the former Navy Yard in Philadelphia will open next week as the headquarters of the Energy Efficient Buildings Hub. The building, which is operated by Pennsylvania State University, will serve as a "living laboratory," where work will be carried out to develop "scalable, repeatable, and cost-effective" design systems for the real world, according to the Energy Department, which is funding operations of the EEB Hub.
