Request for Proposals: HVAC Market Actor Profile

NEEA is soliciting proposals to provide market research services supporting NEEA’s efforts to understand the Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) market in the northwest. The goal of the research is to gain actionable insights about HVAC installation firm employees and businesses that can be used to inform future messaging, education and training materials, market interventions, and research on specific HVAC products and technologies.

The selected contractor will work with NEEA, on behalf of NEEA funders, to create a viable study design meeting two objectives:

  • To understand the motivations, information sources, and decision-making processes of workers involved in HVAC installations, and
  • To understand the business side of HVAC installation companies

NEEA encourages individual and joint proposals (e.g., two or more firms partnering to carry out the full scope) from all firms with relevant experience in qualitative or mixed-methods research. Experience working or engaging with HVAC industry market actors is preferred. However, firms with equivalent experience in a related field are also encouraged to respond.

Intent to Respond is due October 10, 2019. The deadline for submitting written proposals is October 21, 2019 (12pm).
