PATH Demonstration Sites and National Pilots

PATH's Demonstration Sites promote the use of new technologies once those technologies' benefits are understood and accepted. As is the case with Field Evaluations, PATH works with innovative builders to integrate selected technologies into the design; to measure the cost of incorporating the technologies; to evaluate how well technologies are accepted by builders, construction trade groups, and homeowners; and to measure the technologies' performance. Most of the technologies on Demonstration Sites have already gone through Field Evaluations, or information on their performance is available from other sources. PATH has Demonstration Sites in subdivisions of several units, and PATH actively supports the technologies and their manufacturers, as well as the housing projects and their contractors, through large-scale press events, media coverage, and technical documentation.

National Pilots are similar to Demonstration Sites, but are even larger in scale. These projects are not performed by PATH directly but by PATH partner Federal agencies in coordination with PATH. Since the PATH program was initiated, 11 Demonstration Sites and 5 National Pilots have been established. Click on any of the cities below for a brief description of each project and its associated technologies, or click here to access the information using a map.
