The Green Proving Ground program has commissioned Department of Energy National Laboratories to perform real-world measurement and verification of the following technologies in pilot installations in federally-owned buildings. Preliminary technology assessments are available below as PDFs.
Preliminary Technology Assessments
Passive Thermal Storage Platform > This HVAC optimization tool leverages the physical structure and contents of large commercial buildings to store thermal energy and reduce peak energy use. Findings available 2016.
Predictive HVAC Optimization > This cloud-based software layers weather and building-use data on top of existing building automation systems to optimize HVAC operational strategies per each 24-hour period. This evaluation will be hosted as a joint effort with the Department of Energy. Findings available 2016.
