Emerging Technologies

Focus on Energy works with developers and businesses to accelerate the deployment and commercialization of new energy-saving and renewable energy technologies in Wisconsin. Businesses in Wisconsin are saving millions of dollars in energy costs each year—and making great strides to protect the environment—all by adopting emerging technologies. Focus on energy is helping them do that.

An emerging technology differs from best-practice energy-saving technology in that it is relatively new to Wisconsin. Energy-saving technologies with proven implementations in Wisconsin are generally considered to be best practices. However, an emerging technology is a product that has been fully developed and tested, and has been shown to significantly reduce the consumption of energy in a commercial or industrial setting, yet has seen limited implementation in Wisconsin.

If you are a commercial or industrial business looking to adopt energy-saving emerging technologies in Wisconsin, Focus on Energy can help you:

  • Research and evaluate the latest innovative products
  • Secure financing to make energy-saving investments more affordable
  • Increase your company's competitiveness through increased productivity and energy savings

If your business is developing an energy-saving emerging technology with significant energy-saving potential, proven energy-saving installations outside of Wisconsin and a payback or return on investment potential typically considered commercially acceptable, Focus on Energy can help you:

  • Evaluate the market opportunity for your technology
  • Develop and execute plans to market and sell your products
  • Provide funding to help you commercialize your product
  • Evaluate initial installations and document results—metering and verifying results and developing case studies to promote the savings
  • Transition the technologies from emerging to best practices
  • Connect with new leads and interested parties
