|Advanced RTU Campaign (ARC)
||The program goal is to move the commercial building RTU market to greater adoption of high efficiency RTUs and RTU controls. Participants gain access to DOE technical resources including advisors and webinars and earn campaign recognition for achievements in return for evaluating their RTU opportunities for retrofit or retirement, sharing data with the campaign, and implementing an RTU retrofit or retirement.

|Project launches May 2013 through November 2014|
|Buildings Performance Database
Decision-support allowing users to analyze an anonymous dataset of tens of thousands of commercial buildings across the country.
Users can conduct statistical analyses on energy performance and physical and operational characteristics to quantify the energy use, financial performance, and risk profiles of specific energy efficiency improvements. In addition to the BPD’s own analysis tools, third parties will be able to create applications that draw upon the database without revealing individual records (using an Application Program Interface or API)

|Clean Energy & Energy Efficiency Project Funding
||Clean Energy Finance and Investment Authority (CEFIA)
Funding of renewables and efficiency with particular interest in serious retrofits.
Basic program is a commercial PACE (Property Assessed Clean Energy) program.
|Green Power Partnership
||The GPP is looking for companies that want to develop portfolio solar strategies. EPA will help develop resources, tools, and case studies, and provide support for those companies.

|Mult-Tenant Light Commercial (MTLC)
The project Goal is to achieve deep energy savings in MTLC buildings
The project will provide:
• Energy audit (at no charge),
• Energy Analysis
• Project Installation incentives
The project could include lighting, HVAC, energy management controls, plug load sensors, etc. but the customer will have ability to edit the project scope.
|Potential test sites should:
• Be a Strip mall preferably, but could also work with a large retailer with a willing property owner
• Be in the PG&E Service Territory
• Have less than or equal to 200 kW at a single site
• Agree to an audit, energy efficiency upgrade at reduced cost, metering of facility post –retrofit and project write up in the report

|Test site needs to be secured by 2nd Quarter 2013|
|Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) financing
||State by state
||PACE financing is an alternative to a loan, is designed to encourage the installation of renewable-energy systems and improve energy efficiency by helping property owners overcome the barrier of high up-front energy equipment and installation costs. PACE helps make a system more affordable by spreading the cost of the system over a long time period.
