Oswego, NY- A new plan is in motion to help make the state of New York more energy efficient. Governor Andrew Cuomo announced early Tuesday that twelve million dollars will be used to enhance energy efficiency in industrial and multi-family buildings. This plan coincides with the real time energy management initiative launched last year.
Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Real Time Energy Management Initiative was first launched last year with the goal of improving efficiency in commercial buildings, including office buildings, hotels, universities, hospitals and retail stores. This energy management system continuously monitors the energy use of different buildings through sensors meters and other equipment. These systems can pinpoint a building’s operational inefficiencies and help to identify conservation measures and help justify capital improvements.
This initiative is crucial to the success of Governor Cuomo’s plan to enhance the state’s overall energy efficiency because about 60-percent of greenhouse gas emissions in New York come from buildings.
According to Governor Como, the state will continue to invest in “state-of-the-art clean energy solutions to create a greener, more sustainable future for all.”
