Raise the Rooftop on HVAC Efficiency

June 15, 2015 | 10am - 3pm

Schneider Electric - Boston One Campus - Andover, MA

The Northeast/Mid-Atlantic region operates an aging and inefficient fleet of commercial packaged HVAC systems or “Roof-top units” (RTU).  For years the efficiency community has been doing the best we can to make it more likely that a building owner will choose or switch to a high efficiency RTU. We’ve concentrated on reducing the RTU’s cost through incentives. We’ve instructed installation contractors on how to make the sale. We’ve nurtured relationships with equipment manufacturers and distributors to make qualifying equipment more available. Yet, our “playbook” to date has just scratched the surface of available efficiency opportunities associated with both new and existing systems.  What will it take to make significant progress towards changing both the installed base and new equipment market?

The NEEP workshop will focused on considering this question by bringing existing and potentially new market actors together to contemplate new market strategies, including new business models that capture the full variety of value streams to unlock significant energy and peak savings.
