On-Site Power Generation
EISA 2007 requires new buildings and major renovations of Federal buildings to reduce fossil fuel consumption 100 percent by 2030, relative to 2003. As we approach that date, the use of on-site power generation becomes more critical. On-site power generation takes many different forms, from plug-load reduction systems to photovoltaics. The Green Proving Ground program is currently investigating the efficiency and cost effectiveness of four of them.
Published On-Site Power Generation Findings
The Green Proving Ground program, in association with federal laboratories, has subjected the following technologies to real-world measurement and verification in GSA buildings. Links to published results are listed below.
