The General Services Administration (GSA) has released a request for information (RFI). GSA’s Green Proving Ground (GPG) program aims to drive environmental performance in federal buildings and lead market transformation through early adoption and deployment of innovative building technologies. With support from the U.S. Department of Energy, GPG leverages GSA’s national real estate portfolio to establish test bed locations for third-party evaluation of promising pre- and early-commercial technologies. Results from these evaluations help GSA improve building performance, decrease operational costs, and mitigate the impact of the built environment on our natural resources.
GPG Results: In FY 2014, GPG published results for 10 evaluations in the fields of HVAC, building envelope, lighting, and on-site power generation. In addition to 17 ongoing evaluations, GPG is now proud to announce its 2014 program lineup, comprised of 9 new technologies in 13 host sites around the nation.
If your technology is chosen for evaluation, it will be deployed in a pilot installation at a federally-owned building and receive thorough measurement and verification (M&V) by objective third-party evaluators. GPG technology evaluations inform public- and private-sector investment decisions, and help accelerate commercialization and adoption within GSA, other federal agencies, and the real estate industry.

To submit your technology, complete the request for information (RFI) by Friday, November 7, 2014.
