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 Link opens in new window - close new window to return to this page.) 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:
