Abstract

Adoption of energy-efficient technologies and practices as one of the most important and cost-effective strategies to reduce energy consumption while maintaining economic growth. In this study, we performed technology reviews to identify new or under-utilized technologies that could offer savings potential from improving energy efficiency and additional benefits to California industries as well as in the U.S. industries, followed by detailed technology assessment on each targeted technology, with a focus on California applications. A total of eleven emerging or underutilized technologies applicable to California were selected and characterized with detailed information in this report. The outcomes essentially include a multi-page summary profile for each of the 11 emerging or underutilized technologies applicable to California industries.
