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
In the News: From the 2014 Program Lineup
LED Replacement Lamp for CFLs > This “plug-and-play” replacement for CFLs commonly used in commercial downlights is estimated to achieve up to 50% savings in energy consumption with minimal installation cost. Findings available in 2016.
LED Retrofit for Fluorescent Luminaires > Two models of LED retrofit kits for T8 and T12 fluorescent lamps will be evaluated for their ability to save lighting energy without alterations to the existing ceiling grid. Findings available in 2016.
Networked Lighting > This innovative lighting system enables two-way communication between LED luminaires, sensors and back-end software to dynamically achieve both energy savings and operational improvement. Findings available in 2016.
The Green Proving Ground program leverages GSA’s real estate portfolio to evaluate innovative sustainable building technologies.
