Assessment of Energy Efficiency and Electrification Potential in New York State Residential and Commercial Buildings


As directed by the New York State Public Service Commission, NYSERDA sponsored this assessment of energy efficiency and electrification potential for New York State’s residential and commercial buildings, conducted in consultation with Department of Public Service (DPS) Staff, and with the NYS investor-owned utilities, the Long Island Power Authority, and the New York Power Authority. This study estimates savings potential over a 20-year period, from 2023 to 2042. The main objective of the study is to identify and explore energy efficiency and electrification potential opportunities in New York State’s buildings sector statewide. A secondary objective is to inform the design and planning of energy efficiency and electrification interventions, though the study scope does not include estimating program potential that any prospective energy efficiency program could attain.
