Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced $12 million to enhance energy efficiency in industrial and multifamily buildings.




This expands the Real Time Energy Management initiative launched last year to improve efficiency in commercial buildings, including office buildings, hotels, universities, hospitals and retail stores.

Real Time Energy Management Systems continuously monitor real-time data of a building's energy use and transform it into actionable information, by using sensors, meters, and other equipment.

The data can pinpoint a building's operational inefficiencies to help identify conservation measures and help justify capital improvements.

About 60 percent of greenhouse gas emissions in New York come from buildings.

By reducing energy use in commercial buildings, multifamily and industrial buildings, this program advances Governor Cuomo's efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 40 percent by 2030 and the Reforming the Energy Vision strategy to build a clean, resilient and affordable energy system for all New Yorkers.

This program also complements Governor Cuomo's announcement last month of $59 million in funding through the Weatherization Assistance Program to support energy efficiency and cut costs for approximately 9,200 income-eligible families and seniors across the state.
