As the Tier 2 Advance Power Strip category gains significant market momentum, recent independent studies and field tests have demonstrated promising savings potential in both residential and commercial settings.

CalPlug has started working with vendors from this category since 2012. A CalPlug SIMLab testing methodology and Emerging Technology Go-To-Market Roadmap have been drafted with help from all stakeholders.

To formally announce the draft methodology, category definition and go-to-market roadmap, and to invite input from all stakeholders, we are hosting a half day workshop dedicated to this effort.
