New York collaborative reports plenty of responses to request for information on budding energy efficiency technologies
Originally published April 28, 2014
The Energy Efficiency Innovation Collaborative, a public-private partnership of energy industry leaders spearheaded by the New York Power Authority (NYPA), has received more than 120 responses in the first round of its request for information (RFI) on energy efficiency technologies that are commercially available, but not yet widely deployed.
The RFI opened in early February. Companies have responded that specialize in a variety of energy-saving categories that include energy management and metering, heating and air-conditioning, lighting, modeling and analytical tools, and on-site power generation.
"There has been interest from national and international firms, with a significant response from New York-based entities," NYPA said.
The collaborative will evaluate the responses over the next several months before working to integrate the selected technologies into energy-saving projects that NYPA is undertaking at schools, colleges and universities, offices, health-care facilities, and other public buildings.
The collaborative is part of New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo’s effort to scale up clean energy, enhance the state’s competitiveness for clean energy businesses, and make energy systems more resilient. Other members of the partnership include the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority, Syracuse Center of Excellence in Environmental and Energy Systems, the Institute for Building Technology and Safety, and the Electric Power Research Institute.
The RFI process is open-ended, so firms can still provide information for review by visiting www.eeinc-ny.com.
