Our team has partnered with the National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL), the FSEC Energy Research Center, Packetized Energy, and ecobee on this project.
NREL advances the science and engineering of energy efficiency, sustainable transportation, and renewable power technologies and provides the knowledge to integrate and optimize energy systems. NREL will lead and conduct hardware-in-the-loop testing of heat pumps at their laboratory facilities in Golden, CO.
The FSEC Energy Research Center is administered by the University of Central Florida. FSEC has more than 40 years of experience in renewable energy systems and building science. The Center’s 70-member staff includes professionals with expertise in engineering, energy research, building science, energy and policy analysis, as well as education and training.
Packetized Energy is a Department of Energy funded startup that designs and deploys human-friendly systems for coordinating distributed energy resources found in homes and small businesses. Packetized will serve as a distributor partner to contribute to the verification and assessment of the potential for heat pumps to provide grid services.
ecobee is a leader in smart thermostat technology. ecobee will also serve as a distributor partner, alongside Packetized, to contribute to the verification and assessment of the potential for heat pumps to provide grid services.
