New York focuses on smart-energy schools

The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority has announced an initiative geared toward attaining greater energy efficiency at community colleges, universities, and other institutions of higher learning.


The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) has launched New York Energy $mart Focus on Colleges and Universities, a concerted effort to achieve greater efficiency at the state’s learning institutions.

The program will help schools boost efforts to lower energy costs and reduce emissions by identifying available technical assistance and financial incentive programs.

“The Focus on Colleges and Universities takes into account the uniqueness of each campus in crafting an effective energy efficiency strategy,” said Francis J. Murray Jr., NYSERDA president and CEO. “Greater energy efficiency within New York’s colleges and universities will add to successful efforts at reducing statewide electric consumption and greenhouse gas emissions; all part of Governor Paterson’s aggressive clean-energy goals.”
