sensors provides real-time
information enabling facility
operator to better manage HVAC.
48%
Reduction in facility cooling load
3.4
Years simple payback
On GSA Schedule
Recent Deployment: Advanced Power Strips
Improve control over
workplace plug loads
Schedule-based control, where users determine the day and time when a
circuit is energized, found to be most effective.
26%
Energy reduction at workstations (advanced computer management already
in place)
Nearly 50%
Energy reduction in kitchens and printer rooms
On GSA Schedule

Goals
 GPG technology evaluations inform investment decisions
within GSA, other federal agencies, and the real estate industry.
 Unit costs of technologies are reduced by leveraging GSA’s
portfolio, market share, and federal buying power.
 Increased environmental and financial performance of public
and private buildings.
