The 2020 State Energy Code sets the minimum standards for energy efficiency in building construction in New York. Buildings comprise about 60% of New York’s energy consumption, making code compliance essential for energy savings and carbon reduction. NYSERDA provides free or low-cost resources for building energy professional and other members of the construction trade to enhance compliance with the State Energy Code. Classroom and web-based training provides hundreds of free opportunities to code officials statewide, who may qualify for continued education credits.

Low-Carbon Capital Planning Support offers cost-share incentives through the Flexible Technical Assistance (FlexTech) program to assist with multifamily building energy study funding. Portfolio-level studies enable low-carbon upgrade prioritization across one’s building portfolio. Building-specific studies focus the implementation of low carbon retrofits at one building. Studies will list recommended low carbon upgrades, provide a comprehensive cost-benefit analysis, and produce a low carbon phased implementation plan.

Real Time Energy Management (RTEM) is a term used by the New York State Energy and Research Development Authority (NYSERDA) to describe a combination of systems and services employed to monitor and identify building improvement opportunities. The system consists of hardware, software, and secure internet connectivity that continuously transmits a building’s current and historical performance data to the cloud, provides automated fault detection and diagnostics (FDD), and supports demand response. RTEM continuously analyzes real-time granular data from the cloud and transforms it into actionable information for property owners, building managers and tenants, and can pinpoint a building’s operational inefficiencies, identify energy conservation measures, and help justify capital improvements.
