SAN DIEGO, CA – MAY 17, 2022 – Dalrada Corporation (OTCQB: DFCO, “Dalrada”) announced today that United States General Services Administration (GSA) and the Department of Energy (DOE) have chosen the Company’s LikidoONE heat pump to help reduce greenhouse emissions from commercial buildings through high performance, low-carbon solutions set forth by the Green Proving Ground (GPG) program. LikidoONE will now be evaluated under dynamic, real-world conditions in federally or privately-owned commercial buildings.

“Programs like the GPG highlight the growing need for bold energy solutions and accelerate the adoption of clean technologies,” said Jose Arrieta, Director of Emerging Technologies on the Dalrada Board of Directors, and former Chief Information Officer and Interim Chief Data Officer of the Department of Health and Human Services. According to Arrieta, “distributed energy resources (DERs), like the LikidoONE heat pump, will help tackle the climate crisis by cutting costs, improving public health, and significantly reducing emissions.”
The DOE has publicly stated that its top priority is addressing climate change. Joining forces with the GSA in a concerted effort to decarbonize heat, the GPG program calls for technologies that use next-generation, low or no GWP refrigerants.
Dalrada’s flagship product, LikidoONE, is a combustion-free, CO2-based heat pump that:
- Decarbonizes heating (a key component to achieving Net Zero)
- Increases heating and cooling efficiency by capturing and reusing thermal energy
- Uses carbon dioxide (CO2) low GWP refrigerant
- Operates in a wide range of temperatures from -22°F to 250°F
The GSA is the largest public real estate organization in the United States, with a portfolio of more than 8,800 assets, including more than 500 historic properties, and manages almost 370 million square feet of rentable workspace for more than a million federal employees. The GPG program ultimately leverages the GSA’s real estate portfolio to evaluate innovative building technologies and implement de-carbonization solutions where applicable.
Brian Bonar, Dalrada’s Chairman and CEO, states, “We’re honored to be recognized by the GSA and DOE as a green energy innovator. The Green Proving Ground program is the perfect platform to showcase how the de-carbonization capabilities of the LikidoONE heat pump can potentially drive down operational costs in buildings and help lead market transformation through the deployment of bold, new technologies.”
LikidoONE heat pumps are an alternative to traditional greenhouse gas-producing water heaters (boilers) that rely heavily on fossil fuels. The Company’s clean energy innovations enable institutions, industries, and businesses to implement long-term Net-Zero environmental, sustainability, and governance (ESG) initiatives by or before 2050.
