Sorry, there is currently no active technology with that id in the E3T Northwest database
This website provides information about emerging energy-efficient technologies that could have the potential to save electric energy in the Pacific Northwest. The Bonneville Power Administration’s (BPA) Energy Efficiency Emerging Technology (E3T) Program collaborates with technology experts and regional stakeholders to evaluate the technical performance and expected market acceptance of these technologies. The E3T website is managed by Washington State University (WSU) Energy Program, and sponsored by BPA.
You are invited to learn about emerging energy-efficient technologies in the resources provided here:
The database provides information about electricity-saving technologies that are commercially available but not yet in widespread use in the Pacific Northwest. Users can browse all technologies or filter for specific technology characteristics. You are invited to contribute knowledge about recently commercialized technologies that are not in this database.
Search produces a sortable table that is downloadable to Excel.
Browse shows a list of technologies with brief descriptions.
Featured: Advanced Lighting Control Systems
To compare technologies fairly and accurately, it is important to provide consistent information about each technology. Definitions of the fields that appear in the database are provided here.
Webinars provide timely, in-depth information about some of the promising technologies, practices, and knowledge-sharing strategies that BPA is considering for future research, evaluation, or deployment. Some webinars highlight examples of how energy-efficient technologies are used in real-world settings. View recent and archived webinars.
BPA’s Multifamily New Construction Measure (#56)
Wednesday, June 28, 2017 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM PDT
A new Bonneville Power Administration measure beginning in October 2017 will provide incentives for new multifamily construction exceeding Washington 2015 Residential Energy Code by at least 10%, with additional incentives for buildings exceeding 25%. This measure was developed in response to the energy goals of western states, advice and input from customers, and the recommendations from our 2016 Multifamily Technology Advisory Group. Robert Weber and Jess Kincaid of BPA will discuss the potential for this measure, the technical development of the measure, the pre-qualification process, and how this measure will facilitate development of emerging technologies in the region.
