Overview of the HILFT Testbed

DOE 9153 HILFT project was funded via the 2019 BENEFIT FOA. The project aims at developing publicly available, high-fidelity datasets that measure the holistic load flexibility performance of a suite of commonly used commercial building heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) and thermal storage equipment, under a variety of testing conditions. The total budget of the project is about $2.5M.
