Emerging Technology Program

Accelerating the Market Acceptance of Efficient Technologies

GTI's Emerging Technology Program (ETP) is a North American, membership-based utility collaborative. ETP works to accelerate the commercialization and adoption of energy efficient technologies.

ETP works across numerous channels to deliver a pipeline of solutions, enabling utilities to meet energy efficiency goals with less risk and more certainty. “Beyond development” technologies are targeted for residential, commercial and industrial markets, meaning they are newly commercialized or underutilized. The most promising products are identified, and can be evaluated in pilot assessments and demonstrations.

ETP members drive the agenda to address their company and regional needs. Funding is collectively leveraged to address market barriers, evaluate product suitability for utility programs, and deliver guidelines for deployment.

Members have access to GTI services and expertise for program planning, implementation, and assessment. Our company offers a long history of working with utilities, regulatory agencies, government, manufacturers, trade allies, and more. Through ETP, GTI can help tailor initiatives to meet company or regional needs, support pilots and custom programs, or develop regulatory submissions.

Currently, ETP is comprised of over 25 North American member utilities. Learn more about how to join our network of key industry players!
