10:15am - 11:00am Breakout Sessions
Small group breakouts on various topics related to NLC program design and technology adoption:
  • Preparing for Full Scale Adoption
    What market and technology characteristics are necessary to allow for full scale adoption? What can the different stakeholder groups do to prepare for this change?
  • Program Marketing
    What is the best way to market and message a controls program? What are the ways to make contractors, end users, and manufacturer representatives more aware of available incentives and product benefits? What are the attributes of an effective promotional program?
  • Training
    What kind of training is needed? What content is online versus in-person? How should training be incentivized?
  • Ease of Use 
    How can we make it easier for contractors, end users, and manufacturer reps to participate in incentive programs? Is an incentive worth the trouble to get it? What are attributes and characteristics of a simple, easy-to-use NLC program?
  • Increasing Utility Incentives
    How can we get over the low volume hurdle in order to achieve a high volume in adoption levels? How can utilities offer higher incentives while mitigating the risk of not saving enough energy?
