If you are a New York State Agency or Authority with at least half your board of directors appointed by the governor, you will need to meet the New Efficiency: New York and BuildSmart 2025 goals.
New Efficiency: New York is the Governor’s plan to reduce energy usage by 185 TBtu across the state by 2025. Read more here.
State agencies, authorities, SUNY, and CUNY are part of the plan to deliver 11 TBtus of that 185 TBtu savings by 2025.
State agencies and authorities, SUNY, and CUNY are required to deliver 11 TBtus of savings by 2025 through state agencies in support of Governor Cuomo’s New Efficiency: New York.
Through NYPA’s BuildSmart 2025 program, we provide turnkey services to simplify the process of meeting your New Efficiency: New York goals. These services include site audits, project planning, a roadmap, financing strategy, and installation project management to support your energy efficiency initiatives.
BuildSmart NY was New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s program for aggressively pursuing energy efficiency in New York State government buildings while advancing economic growth, environmental protection, and energy security in New York State.
All energy efficiency projects completed since 2015 count towards achieving the goal. This includes energy savings from any fuel source - not just electric savings. Savings from on-site solar will also count towards these goals.
The 11 TBtu energy savings are calculated as projected savings on a project-by-project basis.
The centerpiece of BuildSmart NY was Executive Order 88 (EO88). EO88 was issued by Governor Cuomo on December 28, 2012, and mandated a 20 percent improvement in the energy efficiency performance of State government buildings by April 2020.
Executive Order 166 (EO166) redoubled efforts that were established in Executive Order 88.
