New York’s Progress on Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy
The State is aggressively working to increase adoption of clean energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
NYSERDA's Goals and Accomplishments
NYSERDA’s five core mission outcomes are:
- Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reductions
NYSERDA advances solutions to drive GHG reductions in all areas of New York's economy, supports policy development and planning, and tracks GHG inventory statewide.
- Renewable Energy
NYSERDA drives steady, predictable procurements of renewable energy, helping reduce costs, drive supply chain localization, and supports priority grid investments to facilitate the movement of new renewable energy across the State, delivering benefits to all New Yorkers.
- Energy Efficiency and Building Decarbonization
NYSERDA develops and manages programs to drive deeper levels of energy efficiency and carbon savings in buildings, particularly in disadvantaged communities, with a focus on building electrification and other solutions to pursue a carbon neutral building stock.
- Clean Energy Economy
NYSERDA provides resources for building an inclusive clean energy economy and cultivates a just transition by developing a pipeline of skilled labor and economic opportunities.
- Resilient and Distributed Energy System
NYSERDA helps align infrastructure, investment, and energy system planning decisions to adapt to climate vulnerabilities, with a focus on deploying energy storage and other distributed energy resources to boost resilience.
NYSERDA’s performance accomplishments relative to these primary strategic outcomes are summarized in the Performance Metrics [PDF].
These accomplishments are detailed in Annual Report on Operations and Accomplishments and Mission Statement and Performance Measurement - March 31, 2020 [PDF] in relation to NYSERDA's Strategic Outlook [PDF].
For evaluation, performance measurement, and progress reports on NYSERDA initiatives, see Publications and Technical Reports.
New York State Clean Energy Dashboard
The New York State Clean Energy Dashboard is a resource that provides a Statewide snapshot of program activity by electric and gas utilities and NYSERDA. The Dashboard aggregates and provides information on utilities’ and NYSERDA’s programs and their progress towards targets, which significantly contribute to meeting New York's nation-leading clean energy and climate agenda.
NYSERDA Transparency Plan
In response to the Government Transparency Initiative memo (Memo) [PDF] dated September 20, 2021, NYSERDA conducted a review of internal policies and procedures and addressed each bullet point from the Memo to assess the current and ongoing efforts regarding transparency and accountability.
A summary is available of NYSERDA’s existing, extensive transparency efforts, as well as action items that describe the changes NYSERDA will implement to increase the transparency of its work, along with schedules and monitoring plans to ensure the effectiveness and timeliness of the action items.
