Applications

ETA researchers work to transfer new energy-efficient building technologies from the laboratory to the real world, and stimulate the use of underutilized, high-performance technologies through innovative deployment programs by:

  • Developing, implementing and evaluating proven, cost-effective energy efficiency measures in existing buildings
  • Assembling confidence-building demonstrations of emerging technologies and energy management practices not commonly used by building professionals
  • Developing and disseminating state-of-the-art field guidelines and protocols, such as those for savings measurement and verification
  • Demonstrating the potential to achieve energy savings while maintaining or improving indoor environmental conditions such as reduced indoor air pollution, better lighting quality and thermal comfort
  • Transferring design and application methods and tools to private sector practitioners, including architecture and engineering firms
  • Supporting energy savings performance contracting at the national level

These activities speed the integration of energy efficiency technologies and processes by demonstrating their effectiveness and performance.
