Clean energy can power New York while protecting the environment. The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority, known as NYSERDA, promotes energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy sources. These efforts are key to developing a less polluting and more reliable and affordable energy system for all New Yorkers. Collectively, NYSERDA’s efforts aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, accelerate economic growth, and reduce customer energy bills.
NYSERDA offers objective information and analysis, innovative programs, technical expertise, and support to help New Yorkers increase energy efficiency, save money, use renewable energy, and reduce reliance on fossil fuels. A public benefit corporation, NYSERDA has been advancing energy solutions and working to protect the environment since 1975.
Commercial office tenants play a critical role in achieving lasting reductions in a building's overall demand, energy intensity, and carbon footprint. NYSERDA’S RTEM + Tenants Program promotes the comprehensive monitoring and management of commercial office buildings' energy, electricity demand and carbon footprint spanning the core building areas, shared common spaces, and tenant spaces.
The RTEM + Tenant Program provides cost sharing of up to 33% for RTEM system implementation and services for up to three years. Office buildings must include multiple tenants, and the program requires an RTEM system that monitors at least 75 percent of total building energy consumption, including tenant loads, as well as a robust tenant engagement plan.
NYSERDA qualifies vendors who are experts in delivering the highest-quality RTEM service for commercial office spaces. Our partnered vendors offer advice and support throughout the project—from installation to continued monitoring and optimization.
