How The Program Works

NYPA customers complete an online registration to access the NYEM platform, which is available on both web and mobile devices.

NYPA offers NYEM users submetering hardware to improve its building and equipment performance tracking and advisory services. Installation of NYPA meters on a facility’s main load or submeters on key equipment provides NYEM advisors with granular data on heating, cooling, ventilation, lighting, and other environmental conditions like temperature, CO2 levels, and humidity. NYEM collects and analyzes this data to create a customized energy-use profile for each facility (or entire portfolio and benchmarks facilities against extern standards (and with other buildings in the portfolio when applicable).

Data analysis allows NYEM to make recommendations for conservation measures and savings opportunities. Users are provided with comprehensive monthly reports, smart alerts, and project tracking when energy-saving measures are implemented. The real-time monitoring allows NYEM’s advisors to quickly identify system failures and predict future equipment issues. Information is available in real time on the platform and NYEM users are offered virtual energy efficiency audits conducted within the platform. Insights and services are offered and priced based on the level of data collected and advisory services

Enrollment is free but insights and services are priced based on the level of data collected and advisory services offered.
