DE-FOA-0001226: Request for Information (RFI) - High Impact Commercial Building Technology

The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Building Technologies Office (BTO) has developed a framework, called the High Impact Technology (HIT) Catalyst, for accelerating the voluntary adoption of high impact, cost-effective, energy-saving and underutilized commercial building technologies.  This Request for Information seeks data, information and feedback on the high impact technologies included in BTO’s analysis and planning.


Please see the complete Request for Information (RFI) DE-FOA-0001226: High Impact Commercial Building Technology under FOA Documents below.


Information produced through this RFI will enable BTO Commercial Buildings Integration (CBI) to 1) prime the market for high impact technologies currently under development; 2) develop a pipeline of underutilized, high impact technologies ready for deployment; 3) better understand market potential, interest and readiness; 4) connect technology providers with demonstration hosts, distributors, end users, and tools to assist in the acceleration of market uptake. 


EERE is specifically interested in information and data related to available high impact technologies and market interest in those technologies.  This RFI also supplements the Request issued by EERE on March 6, 2014 to introduce the HIT Catalyst and solicit initial feedback and stakeholder inputs.


THIS IS SOLELY A REQUEST FOR INFORMATION AND NOT A FUNDING OPPORTUNITY ANNOUNCEMENT (FOA). EERE will not accept any applications or solicitations in response to this RFI.
