According to the release, a baseline will be established, and metered energy usage will be monitored by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), with results from the trials published in early 2014.

"Technologies that are short-listed for enhanced measurement and verification are chosen because they demonstrate the greatest potential agency wide, to meet GSA's sustainability goals," said Kevin Powell, GSA Green Proving Ground program manager.

"Daintree is honored to have been selected to participate in the GPG 2012 program, and we look forward to working with the GSA in this important effort. We’re pleased to be in a position to help the government save energy, and based on our experience in recent, similar implementations, we’re confident that we can help GPG achieve dramatic energy efficiency improvements," Daintree's chief executive officer (CEO), Danny Yu added.
