Jul 10, 2017
A CEE-led research project has been selected for funding by The U.S. Department of Energy's Building Technologies Office.
Read the U.S. Department of Energy's official announcement.
CEE's project will research and validate energy and cost savings opportunities using existing PoE infrastructure to power and automate lighting, plug loads, and HVAC system controls.
According to the DOE's official announcement, projects funded through the DOE's Building Technologies Office will leverage a combined $5.4 million to help ignite new innovative commercial building technology packages that can save significant energy in new and existing buildings. Study findings will also enable investment-level decision making, helping "accelerate the development of utility programs for packages of technologies that meet cost-effectiveness thresholds."
