Connecting Communities for Sustainable Solutions

Madison, WI
This pilot will start with approximately five publicly-owned buildings before expanding to additional ten privately-owned commercial buildings to upgrade into GEBs. Project deliverables include scalable business models for utilities bundling of aligned demand response and energy efficiency incentive programs, and turnkey installation under a single vendor and a GEB toolkit with integrated financing options to address opportunities in public and private buildings.
