Building Owners and Developers

The RetrofitNY initiative is interested in aggregating demand for building owners. We are seeking to iterate on the first prototype solutions. These solutions will achieve or approach net-zero energy and, improve the appearance of the building and quality of life for tenants. Subsequent iterations will further drive cost compression of the retrofit solutions and improve on efficiencies demonstrated in the initial prototypes.

If you own or manage a portfolio of buildings that have planned refinancing in the next 12-30 months, NYSERDA is interested in working with you to develop pilots to demonstrate feasibility.

  • Select a cluster/portfolio: Screen your portfolio for buildings that are architecturally simple, qualify as affordable housing, and are scheduled for major capital upgrades/rehabilitation in the next 12-30 months or later. Suitable buildings would fall in the 1-2 story or 3-7 story multifamily typologies.
  • Identify Building Physical Needs: Compile a list of the physical requirements for renovation
  • Collaborate: Contact the RetrofitNY program to discuss feasibility and opportunities for collaboration and formalize your interest through a letter of interest document.
