Document Description
This purpose of this project is to reduce the cost and increase the uptake of energy efficiency building retrofits by residential and small commercial electricity customers. The proposed approach is to accelerate market-ready technologies through education, incentives, and convenience, while development and demonstrating the viability of unproven technologies. Although a few under-deployed technologies will given special attention under this program, the intent is to ensure building owners have access to objective and accurate information about all market-ready technology options, as well as operational, behavioral, and maintenance techniques that have proven effectiveness. The project consists of an applied research phase and technology demonstration and deployment phase. During both phases, data will be collected from existing buildings that are recruited to be part of the research project. In the applied research phase, a small number of existing buildings representative of typical buildings types in Sonoma and Mendocino counties will be recruited to serve as test sites for installation of promising emerging technologies (including heat pump water heaters, advanced air-source "mini-split" heat pumps and phase change ceiling panels) with the purpose of developing reliable savings estimates and streamlined installation "best practices".
