Solution Providers and Manufacturers

Connect with your network of partners and colleagues in manufacturing, architecture, engineering, and construction to explore development and deployment of key technologies needed for the RetrofitNY initiative such as:

  • Highly durable and low-cost high-performance exterior envelope retrofit panels that integrate windows and doors, suitable for retrofit application.
  • High performance low-cost roofing systems capable of integrating with solar PV for retrofit application.
  • All electric integrated mechanical systems (energy pods) capable of delivering heating, cooling, ventilation, dehumidification and domestic hot water to individual apartments and installed on 1-3 story buildings. Integrated controls to facilitate remote performance monitoring and maintenance should be included. The energy pod should be aggressively priced to deliver services at comparable cost or less than business as usual to serve as a market disruptor.
  • A new business model is needed to deliver a turn-key net-zero retrofit solution to building owners. RetrofitNY is seeking to initiate the creation of entities that provide a multi-functional approach to coordinate with the component manufacturers for the technologies outlined above, to optimize and streamline the entire project delivery while providing significant cost compression.

NYSERDA plans to engage and support industry teams to develop the key technologies and processes outlined above through various Program Opportunity Notices and other solicitations.

Benefits for Solutions Providers & Manufacturers:

  • Access to a burgeoning multi-billion-dollar high-performance retrofit market
  • Financial and technical support for developing scalable energy-efficient retrofit solutions applicable to affordable housing units across New York State and beyond, with applications to market-rate renovations and new construction
  • Funding opportunities to develop new technical strategies and solutions
  • Access to NYSERDA expertise, technical and regulatory support from RetrofitNY’s industry partners, and transfer of knowledge and guidance from the successful Energiesprong program’s team members
  • Recognition as a change-maker and market disruptor standardizing the retrofit model that will become one of the default methods for affordable and market-rate renovations statewide and across the broader Northeast region
  • Collaboration and networking opportunities with early adopters in the housing, financing, and energy industries
  • Widespread exposure throughout the industry through publication and promotion of all solutions developed
