Governor Andrew Cuomo recently 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 deploying cutting-edge clean energy technology and software, this program helps business owners improve efficiency, reduce costs and help us combat climate change," Governor Cuomo said. "Across New York, we are investing in state-of-the-art clean energy solutions to create a greener, more sustainable future for all."
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
