Applied gas energy research • benefiting end users • accelerated by utilities • with many partners
Why We Do It Our Goals
Save consumers money
Save energy and reduce GHG emissions
Enable safe, reliable, and resilient operation of end user’s equipment and energy delivery systems
Achieve superior environmental performance
Integrate with renewable energy sources
Our goals and efforts directly benefit our customers, our communities, society, and the environment. New technologies not only create more low-carbon options or increase the safety, reliability and resiliency of on-site equipment or energy delivery systems (e.g. microgrids), but affordable equipment with higher efficiencies can substantially reduce capital and operating costs.
By partnering with governmental agencies, national laboratories, universities, entrepreneurs, manufacturers, and other researchers, we’re widening and accelerating the availability of robust, new technologies for our customers and for our utility-sponsored Energy Efficiency and Market Transformation programs. And by helping our customers improve their efficiency, we’re also reducing our downstream Scope 3 GHG emissions.
But significant challenges and hurdles exist to develop and demonstrate new technologies, such as highlighted below for four groups of our customers. As a unique utility-directed not-for-profit collaborative, UTD addresses these challenges and hurdles to accelerate market transformation for our customers.
