At the Summit, these organizations will share market solutions on how they are cutting energy intensity across their buildings portfolios.
This funding encourages investments in energy-saving technologies that can be tested and deployed in offices, shops, restaurants, hospitals, hotels and other types of commercial buildings.
These four projects will generate data, case studies, and information intended to help commercial building owners adopt new energy efficient technologies.
The Building Technologies Office (BTO) works with the commercial building industry to accelerate the uptake of energy efficiency technologies and techniques in both existing and new commercial buildings. By developing, demonstrating, and deploying cost-effective solutions, BTO strives to reduce energy consumption across the commercial building sector by at least 1,600 TBtu.
