GSA Taps Three Concepts Under Proving Ground Program

Three technological concepts will undergo testing in General Services Administration facilities through an initiative evaluating pre-commercial building technologies for federal government facilities. The Proving Ground program is established to help GSA create investment decisions through the demonstration of building technologies, the agency said Tuesday.

The selected concepts include a tool that performs hard water chemical alteration, a platform that changes heating and cooling systems' operations and a technology that links storage devices and on-site energy generators to prevent conversion losses and direct current loads. The agency noted that it has deployed 15 technologies in over 500 facilities as part of the program.
