ENERGY DEPARTMENT ANNOUNCES $6.5 MILLION TO SCALE UP THE ENERGY EFFICIENCY OF US COMMERCIAL BUILDINGS!
Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) Number: DE-FOA-0001518: The Building Technologies Office (BTO) has announced the availability of $6.5 million for DE-FOA-0001518, “Scaling Up the Next Generation of Building Efficiency Packages.” BTO seeks proposals driving innovation in real building technology demonstrations while also fostering the collaboration of dynamic demonstration teams. The General Services Administration (GSA) Green Proving Ground program is a key collaborator, will participate in the review committee, and offer demonstration host sites.
Successful applicants will propose high impact real building demonstrations led by strategically structured teams who will identify and verify the cost and energy performance of multi-system energy efficiency packages (groups of technologies that improve efficiency across two building systems: envelope, lighting/electrical, plug, process, heating, ventilation, cooling, refrigeration, energy management and information, sensors and controls).
The objective of this funding is to generate and disseminate data, case studies, and information that lowers perceived risk regarding the efficacy and economic benefits of innovative and under-utilized commercial building technology packages that can save significant amounts of energy in new and existing commercial buildings. Demonstrations of the technology packages funded through this FOA are likely to meet the investment hurdles for the commercial real estate market at scale, but may not at the current time, and will have the potential to significantly reduce energy consumption in U.S. commercial buildings. The technical and/or non-technical products of this funding will enable investment-level decision-making, and will accelerate the development of utility programs for packages of technologies that meet cost-effectiveness thresholds.
A Teaming Partner List is attached in EERE Exchange. Proposed projects or approaches may reference the goals in the BTO Multi-Year Program Plan. Interested parties should consider responding to the GSA Green Proving Ground Program Request for Information GS-00-P-17-CY-C-7001.
