The Technology Performance Exchange is a centralized, Web-based portal for finding and sharing energy performance data for commercial building technologies. Individuals who manufacture, supply, test, or evaluate technologies can use data entry forms to upload standardized, product-specific energy performance data. The Technology Performance Exchange also allows technology evaluators to quickly and easily identify who submitted data, when the data were submitted, and how the data were derived. Technology evaluators can leverage the raw data contained in the Technology Performance Exchange to (1) greatly reduce the time required to evaluate technology performance; and (2) improve the quality of their assessments. Energy-saving products will thus be able to penetrate the marketplace more quickly than ever before.
To address the need for accessible, high-quality data, the Technology Performance Exchange enables technology suppliers, third-party testing laboratories, and other entities to submit product performance data that private and public sector technology evaluators can use in their assessments to inform fact-based procurement decisions. BPA developed the technology with National Renewable Energy Laboratory. The U.S. Department of Energy's Federal Energy Management Program and the Building Technologies Office are collaborating on this project.
