This is the third of six rounds of funding under the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority’s (NYSERDA) Advanced Buildings Program, which will provide a total of $25 million through 2015. Through the program, NYSERDA is partnering with manufacturers, research scientists, building owners and property managers interested in developing and applying new and emerging energy-efficient technologies.
This competitive program seeks to accelerate the commercialization of new technologies that offer improved energy and environmental performance. Funding will be available through all stages of the product development process, from concept to commercialization, field installation and evaluation.
