Help us accelerate energy efficiency in the Northwest
NEEA actively solicits bids on open Requests for Proposals and Qualifications from qualified contractors. View our current requests below for more details. We appreciate your interest in NEEA, and in accelerating energy efficiency in the Northwest.
The Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (NEEA) has recently established a broad, long-term objective to “displace 85% of electric resistance heating load in existing residential construction with inverter-driven heat pump technology.” NEEA recognizes that the Northwest region must move beyond its current focus area of limited ductless heat pump products, applications, and markets in order to realize this long-term objective. The project envisioned by this RFP is to provide NEEA and the Northwest region with a more detailed understanding of the technical and market potential (and barriers) of a wide variety of inverter-driven heat pump-based technologies, applications, and markets.
Intent to respond is due August 8, 2014. The deadline for submitting written proposals is August 22, 2014.

The Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (NEEA) is working with the Refrigerating Engineers and Technicians Association (RETA) to create a certification called Certified Refrigerating Energy Specialist (CRES). The purpose of the RETA CRES initiative is to accelerate the transformation of the industrial refrigeration market towards energy efficient operation. The RETA CRES initiative is in the market test phase of its release. With this RFP, NEEA is seeking to test the viability of the initiative and is soliciting proposals for professional services to conduct a market test and validation of the initiative’s certification product.
