The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) has published a request for information seeking information from commercial organizations, educational institutions and non-profit organizations on new sustainable-building technologies and practices to test in federal buildings. According to GSA, it will use the information as part of its 2013 “Green Proving Ground” (GPG) program, which aims to find ways to make buildings more efficient and to assist industry in deploying new green technologies. Under the GPG program, GSA uses its 9,600 buildings across the United States as a “proving ground” to evaluate these technologies and help the agency meet its mandated sustainability goals contained in the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 and Executive Order 13514 of October 5, 2009. GSA is seeking responses to its request by November 23, 2012.
