GSA’s Green Proving Ground (GPG) program and DOE’s High Impact Technology (HIT) Catalyst have issued a joint Request for Information calling for innovative emerging building technologies that can cost-effectively transform the operational efficiency of federal and commercial buildings. Responses to this RFI will be evaluated based on your technology’s potential environmental performance, cost savings, and opportunity for widescale deployment. Technologies will be considered, by one or both programs, for third-party measurement and verification in occupied, operational buildings.
