Technology Deployment List

Technology Ranking Criteria
Technologies featured in the Technology Deployment List were ranked by:

  • Federal Impact: Combination of energy savings potential and applicability in the Federal market (50% weighting)
  • Cost Effectiveness: Relative cost of the implementation and average expected return typically reported in case studies as simple payback period (30% weighting)
  • Probability of Success: Combination of the qualitative characteristics scored separately and averaged to determine probability of success. Criteria include strength of supply chain, knowledge base, implementation difficulty, and customer acceptance (20% weighting).

The Federal Energy Management Program's (FEMP) Technology Deployment List features information about promising new and underutilized energy-saving technologies available for Federal and commercial building sector deployment. Common considerations and barriers are also outlined.
