The ACT2 Project

The ACT2 (Advanced Customer Technology Test for Maximum Energy Efficiency) project marks the first time that energy efficiency measures (EEsMs) -- such as advanced technologies for lighting, cooling, and insulation -- have been used as componets of integrated systems. Since most of these EEMs have already been rigorously tested and proven individually, ACT2 is focusing on the cumulative, energy-related synergistic effects that EEMs can have when used in integrated packages.
