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

LED Retrofit Kits with ALC [PDF - 247 KB] This evaluation will test five different LED-based lighting systems with integrated advanced lighting controls (ALC). The retrofit kits are designed to upgrade existing recessed fluorescent troffer lighting to LED lighting without requiring a full fixture replacement or work in the ceiling plenum. Findings available in 2018.

Networked Lighting [PDF - 213 KB] 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.


Green Proving Ground

The Green Proving Ground program leverages GSA’s real estate portfolio to test innovative building technologies and provide recommendations on their deployment.
