Join our Department of Energy Pilot Project

Together with the Department of Energy, Slipstream is looking for sites to demonstrate the efficiency benefits of integrated controls. With state-of-the-art energy systems that combine connected lighting, automated shades, and intelligent energy storage systems, integrated controls maximize a building’s load flexibility to drive deep energy savings.

We need demonstration sites for this project. By joining the pilot, you can usher in the future of buildings within your own walls – not to mention reduce your building’s energy costs.

Building Requirements

Your building may be a good candidate if it has:

•    Daylit spaces
•    Common workspaces
•    Rooftop HVAC
•    A building automation system (BAS)

Efficiency Targets

This project aims to deliver the following benefits to each demonstration site:

•    Reduce lighting demand by 50% through controls
•    Improve rooftop unit (RTU) efficiency by 10% and reduce RTU demand by 40%

Benefits of Participating

•    Installation of state-of-the-art energy systems and controls
•    Free 5-ton hybrid air conditioner + thermal energy storage
•    Improved energy efficiency
•    Marketing and publicity opportunities for your building
•    Additional DOE incentives may be available
