The High Impact Technology (HIT) catalyst is designed to help identify and prioritize cost-effective, underutilized, energy-efficient technologies. Commercial building owners, operators, and designers; technology providers; utilities; and governments can use this information to focus resource development and deployment activities. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) deploys HIT catalysts through partnerships with the commercial buildings industry via the Better Buildings Alliance, federal leaders, regional nonprofits, and efficiency organizations. Short- and mid-term goals include creating a market-facing map of the building technology landscape; long-term goals include collecting data through HIT catalyst deployment activities to support voluntary programs, codes, and standards.
