The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) partners with state and local facilities to assess energy-saving technologies in real-world settings. This process is known as field validation, an essential step in the research and development process. The Public Sector Technology Field Validation Project Map provides case studies of current and completed validation projects across the United States. View the map below to explore various energy-saving technologies in real-world settings.
State and Local Partnership Opportunity
The Office of State and Community Energy Programs, Building Technologies Office, Federal Energy Management Program, and the Advanced Manufacturing Office are collaborating on near-term technology field validation efforts.
We are actively seeking state and local government partners. For more information, contact Gregory Dierkers.
Partnership Opportunity Goals
DOE’s goal is to partner with state and local governments to identify host building sites in which to:
- Install and validate DOE-supported energy efficiency technologies, and
- Provide technical assistance (e.g., modeling, data collection, installation) to energy staff and building managers to support new fields tests that will inform broader adoption of successfully validated technologies.
