The Berkeley-Tsinghua Joint Research Center (BTJRC) is co-led by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab), and Tsinghua University. The BTJRC is supported by a steering committee comprised of senior researchers and faculties from the three partner institutions: Berkeley Lab, Tsinghua University, and the University of California, Berkeley (UC Berkeley). An external Advisory Council is also being formed to provide strategy and outreach assistance.

University of California, Berkeley

The Berkeley Energy and Climate Institute (BECI) is the coordinating hub for energy and climate research at the University of California, Berkeley. BECI fosters collaboration between UC Berkeley, Berkeley Lab, and other external partners, and promotes interdisciplinary research by integrating science, technology, business and policy.


Tsinghua University

The Low Carbon Energy Laboratory at Tsinghua University focuses its research on new energy and energy-saving technologies, meeting the significant demand of emerging national strategic industries. The Laboratory includes researchers across many disciplines, including thermal, nuclear, and electrical engineering, as well as materials science, architecture, management, and public policy.
