Residential Statewide Baseline Study of New York State - July 2015


NYSERDA, in collaboration with the New York State Department of Public Service (DPS), conducted a Residential Statewide Baseline Study from 2011 to 2014 of the single-family and multifamily housing segments. The overall objective of the study was to understand the residential building stock and associated energy use and the penetration of energy-efficient equipment, building characteristics, and energy management practices. Respondent household characteristics were also collected.

The study also includes a heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) Market Assessment to identify the baseline conditions for residential non-electric heating and water heating equipment, central air conditioning, and heat pumps in New York State.

Using data from the above components, a study of technical, economic, and achievable residential energy efficiency potential in New York State was also conducted. The study looks at energy efficiency potential over the next three and five years (2016 and 2018, respectively) from a base year of 2013.
