The Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) is gathering market data from DC lighting and DC microgrid controller manufacturers and solution providers to characterize the current states of these two technologies and their interoperability. The responses will help inform future research needs to advance DC lighting technology and DC building microgrids, with the ultimate goal of increasing energy efficiency and resilience while enabling Zero Energy Buildings.
For each technology, PNNL is requesting information on (a) the current availability, types, and characteristics of technology solutions and (b) perspectives on technology benefits and adoption. Each technology has an associated RFI. Respondents may submit to either or both RFIs. Each RFI should take less than 1 hour to complete. Responses will be accepted through May 21.
