HVAC and appliance manufacturer LG Electronics is partnering with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) on a new program designed to accelerate adoption of energy-saving technologies for commercial buildings.
As a launch partner in the new DOE Technology Performance Exchange (TPEx) program, LG Electronics USA is helping building owners identify the industry’s most efficient commercial air conditioning systems.
Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) commercial air systems, including LG’s Multi V IV system, bring a new level of energy efficiency, performance and flexibility to U.S. commercial office buildings, schools, hotels and hospitals.
Using the DOE TPEx program, product evaluators and purchasers can access a centralized, web-based portal for finding and sharing energy performance data for commercial building technologies such as VRF systems. This will allow them to quickly and easily identify best-in-class technologies and data for assessing their energy saving impact on a building.
Technology evaluators can leverage the raw data contained in the Technology Performance Exchange to greatly reduce the time required to evaluate technology performance and improve the quality of their assessments. Energy-saving products will thus be able to penetrate the marketplace more quickly than ever before.
With the TPEx, builders can better assess LG’s product performance, conduct financial analyses with greater confidence, and compete more effectively for limited organizational capital resources by presenting robust energy savings and payback analysis’ for approval.
