Emerging Technologies and Accelerated Commercialization - Commercial/Institutional (ETAC-CI)

Building owners and technology developers can become pioneers that change markets through NYSERDA’s ETAC Program. By forging connections that enable real-world demonstrations, the program helps speed up the adoption of emerging technologies and approaches that are commercially-available, energy-saving products, technologies, or approaches.

ETAC-CI supports market adoption of promising emerging technologies and approaches in commercial, institutional, and nonprocess-related areas (e.g., lighting and other building systems). Industry leaders collaborate on in-field demonstrations and share their findings. Building owners and project developers work together to incorporate emerging technologies and approaches into energy efficiency projects, and collaborators can monitor, validate, and publicize the savings potential.

ETAC-CI provides three opportunities to participate as described in the following table.

  PON 2689
