Des Plaines, Ill.-based Gas Technology Institute (GTI), a not-for-profit RD&D organization serving the natural gas industry, has announced the launch of a North American industry collaborative to drive the deployment of energy-efficient emerging technologies and solutions.
The Emerging Technology Program (ETP) is focused on accelerating the commercialization and adoption of the latest end-use and energy efficiency technologies. The program is designed to help companies identify and evaluate the most promising products and integrated solutions and assess their suitability for future use in the marketplace. The collaborative will leverage the collective intelligence, expertise, and funding of members from the natural gas industry to help deploy new technologies.
"With the collaborative approach, we'll be able to approach national manufacturers and big-box retailers with a larger voice representing utilities across the U.S. and Canada," said Ryan Kerr, manager of emerging technologies at GTI.
ETP projects will assess energy use, costs and benefits, marketing opportunities and barriers, and energy savings potential for various products and processes. Plans are to conduct field demonstrations to validate the performance, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness of new technologies and program strategies.
