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 with additional support from the Western Area Power Administration.
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.
JUST SCHEDULED! Easily Commissioned Lighting Controls (October 22, 2015 at 12:00 PM Pacific Time)
Interior lighting controls with “plug and play” or “automatic configuration” setup options are becoming more prevalent in today’s rapidly evolving controls marketplace. Lighting controls can significantly reduce energy use, but there is a lack of independent third-party information available on their function or their interactions with different luminaire systems. This webinar describes results from a pilot study which evaluated energy usage and light levels under the default commissioning protocols for three lighting controls systems paired with two LED luminaire arrays, as well as an LED luminaire system with integrated lighting controls.

RESCHEDULED! Mogul Base LED Lamps for Retrofits (September 30, 2015 at 12:00 PM Pacific Time)
This webinar describes performance and safety tests of a selection of mogul base LED replacement lamps for energy efficiency retrofits. Presentations by lighting experts from the Lighting Research Center and Bonneville Power Administration.
West Coast Irrigation Efficiency (September 28, 2015)
Agricultural growers are more concerned than ever about increasing both water and energy efficiency in addition to improving crop yield and quality. This webinar, jointly sponsored by Bonneville Power Administration and Western Area Power Administration, features presentations on precision irrigation emerging technologies by experts on both drip and pivot irrigation systems. Growers, utilities, irrigation consultants, researchers and policy makers are all encouraged to attend.
Experts from across the country participate in technical advisory groups (TAGs) to evaluate commercially available electricity-saving technologies and recommend technologies that could best enhance the region’s portfolio of energy-saving measures. You are invited to learn about current and past TAGs.
