Manufacturers are continuously bringing new innovations to the market, many of which can also help energy efficiency program administrators save energy when they need it, where they need it. With common objectives in mind, manufacturers and program administrators have a strong track record for working together to evaluate and advance emerging technologies. But like infants and toddlers, each emerging technology moves at its own pace, and in its own way. This session will highlight how manufacturers and program administrators are working together accelerate introduction and uptake of emerging technologies by crafting strategies that address the unique barriers facing different technologies.
