Technology Information Suites
Technology Information Suites are designed to help you better understand and overcome technical barriers related to specific technologies. From conduction losses and solar gains in windows to advanced refrigeration technology, these resources give you in-depth insights into the latest technological advances.
Recent advances in window technologies for both reductions in conduction losses and solar gains can contribute to significant energy savings in commercial buildings.
Exterior walls are a major component of the building envelope. As a barrier between the interior and the exterior environments, walls need features that minimize energy losses while maintaining durability.
Roofs are another source of building energy loss, but roofing design and materials can help to reduce the amount of cooling required in certain climates by reflecting solar heat rather than absorbing it.
Outdoor Lighting Technical Resources
LED technology has improved dramatically with enhanced manufacturing processes, materials delivering consistently high-quality light output by way of smaller components, and greater interoperability with other digital platforms.
Advanced Refrigeration Technologies for Energy Savings
This toolkit contains resources that support the use of advanced refrigeration technologies to achieve energy savings in comparison to traditional refrigeration systems.
Decarbonizing the Commercial Kitchen
This collection of resources supports commercial kitchen operators in the shift to lower-carbon options for equipment, operations, and maintenance practices.
This collection of resources provides information on the applicability, technical considerations, and benefits of using natural refrigerants in place of traditional hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) refrigerants in order to support the widespread adoption of natural refrigerants.
This series of resources can help building operators properly maintain HVAC systems to improve performance, save energy, and prolong the life of commercial HVAC equipment.
