The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) works to promote energy efficiency, renewable energy, and emissions reduction across New York’s economy and energy system. Since our founding in 1975, NYSERDA’s mission, vision, and programs are continually evolving to improve the lives of New Yorkers. In addition to supporting clean energy and technologies, we’re working to advance equity and inclusivity, jobs and economic development, public health, and community resilience through our work. Collectively, these efforts are key to developing a cleaner, more reliable, and affordable energy system for all New Yorkers.
NYSERDA is on the front lines of the global energy transition and combating climate change. Our executive leadership and staff play a crucial role in implementing the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (Climate Act ) and Climate Action Council Scoping Plan, which are focused on accelerating climate action and efforts to secure a just and equitable transition to a clean energy economy. NYSERDA also supports other New York State regulations and statewide energy planning for clean energy future.
NYSERDA works with stakeholders across New York, including residents, businesses, developers, community leaders, local government officials, universities, utility representatives, investors, and entrepreneurs.
These partnerships help develop, invest, and promote a clean energy economy that:
- Enables communities, residents, and businesses to benefit from and take action on clean energy, climate, and resilience
- Leverages program and private investments to support job creation and expand access to economic opportunities for underserved populations and other Disadvantaged Communities
- Overcomes risks and barriers to promote innovation and large-scale clean energy development
Governed by a 13-member Board, NYSERDA is a trusted source for objective information and analysis, technical expertise, and support on energy in New York State. While our programs operate statewide, our offices are located in Albany, Buffalo, New York City, and West Valley.
New York is a global climate leader building a healthier future with thriving communities; homes and businesses powered by clean energy; and economic opportunities accessible to all New Yorkers.
Advance clean energy innovation and investments to combat climate change, improving the health, resiliency, and prosperity of New Yorkers and delivering benefits equitably to all.
