Minnesota Dep of Commerce issues RFI on Internet of Things

A great opportunity for the right person and I’m excited to see what the folks at Energy Resources are thinking…

The Minnesota Department of Commerce, Division of Energy Resources seeks responses to a Request for Information (RFI) from organizations or individuals interested in applied research and development projects that serve to accelerate the development and adoption of new energy efficient technologies and program strategies in Minnesota. The information obtained from this effort is intended to inform electric and natural gas utility Conservation Improvement Program (CIP) development and to guide state energy policy development.

The topic of this RFI is the Internet of Things (IoT). IoT refers to the interconnection of everyday devices, objects, or sensors via the Internet which enables those devices to send, receive, and process data in real time. While the potential to achieve greater efficiency through IoT devices and systems is promising, significant challenges remain to adopting and implementing them. As a result, Commerce would like to gather information and input about potential research topic ideas related to the use of IoT devices and systems in CIP.

The RFI and required forms are available for download on the Commerce RFP webpages through Monday, November 12, 2018.  Potential responders may also request a hard copy of the RFI by mail from this office. Requests for hard copies must be received by Commerce no later than 12:00 p.m. (Noon) Central Time (CT) on Wednesday, November 7, 2018.

The RFI and forms can be obtained from:
