GSA and DOE Call for Innovative Technologies to Improve Federal and Commercial Buildings

WASHINGTON — The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) and U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) issued a joint Request for Information (RFI) this week for next-generation building technologies in support of their respective Green Proving Ground (GPG) and High Impact Technology (HIT) Catalyst programs. The RFI seeks information from industry on emerging and underutilized technologies that have the potential to improve economic and environmental performance in federal and commercial buildings.

The RFI invites technology manufacturers and industry stakeholders to submit information on emerging technologies, which will be used to identify technologies for evaluation through the GPG program, HIT Catalyst program, or both. Selected technologies will be matched with federally owned buildings or commercial buildings, respectively, to pilot measurement and verification by third-party evaluators. Project results are intended to help accelerate deployment of high impact technologies, and to inform public and private sector investment decisions.
