NYE-RIC Bridge to Markets Program
What is NYE-RIC Bridge to Markets Program?
The NYE-RIC Bridge to Markets Program is designed to connect New York State firms that have developed innovative products for advanced buildings with the diverse and critical stakeholders in the target market of New York City.
NYE-RIC is New York's Energy Regional Innovation Cluster, a pioneering consortium of partners from upstate and downstate working together to transform the way energy-efficient building systems are invented, developed, demonstrated and deployed in New York State, across the country and around the world.
Over the past year, SyracuseCoE and its NYE-RIC partners have developed and demonstrated a process that creates jobs throughout the state by accelerating the adoption of new technologies developed by upstate firms in retrofits to improve energy efficiency and indoor air quality in New York City buildings.
This NYE-RIC Bridge to Markets Program was funded by SyracuseCoE and NYSERDA, and conducted in collaboration with CenterState CEO.

"Having participated in the recent Bridge-to-Market Meeting, I can attest that it is achieving its objective of connecting upstate companies with leaders in the NYC markets who are positioned to provide advice and access to entry to one of the world's largest markets."
-- Ed Reinfurt, Director, Division of Science, Technology and Innovation, Empire State Development Corporation
"This event demonstrates the innovative pool of technologies being developed upstate, as well as the breadth of opportunities to connect downstate. We are delighted that these interactions are opening important doors, as well as forging strategic partnerships."
-- Ed Bogucz, Executive Director, Syracuse CoE
"This is an extraordinary opportunity to convene all the stakeholders in one place. It is incredibly valuable to an investor to have these diverse perspectives, and to have exposure to companies across multiple stages of development, spanning multiple sectors. This is an extremely effective way to make connections."
--Lou Schick, CTO, Partner and Co-founder, New World Capital Group

The Fulton companies have been manufacturing boilers in upstate New York for the last 80 years. Their products include a wide range of boiler sizes and fuel options matched with unprecedented boiler expertise. They also sell control systems for boilers of all makes that allow customers to optimize the energy efficiency of existing boilers, multiple boilers systems and new boilers. This provides building owners the ability to retrofit boiler systems to optimize energy efficiency without having to replace every boiler and legacy building management systems.

Advanced Energy Panels are an alternative to replacement windows. They have a sturdy aluminum frame that mounts on the indoor side of existing windows and has two separate surfaces (front and back) of clear glazing material which trap a 7/16″ pocket of air between them. A second air pocket is created between the Advanced Energy Panel and your existing window and can triple the insulation value of the windows at a fraction of the cost of replacement windows. The panels cost between $10 to $12 per square foot and are easily installed. They have never made a sale in New York City and face issues related to finance, split incentives, trained workforce, and are a nonunion manufacturer.

Ener-G-Rotors is a georotor that turns waste heat into energy. The heart of the System is the expander, Ener-G-Rotors’ trochoidal gear engine, which is a relatively simple positive displacement device. In essence, the mechanism is a modified georotor running as an expander. The innovation is how they hold the inner and outer rotor each on two sets of pre-loaded roller element bearings, controlling the radial and axial tolerances of the inner and outer rotors. They have a 5kw and 50kw model. Because the device uses only waste heat as its fuel, its payback period is often less than a year. They have an agreement with ConEd to test one of their 5 kw products at a fuel facility owned by ConEd.

Impact Technologies is a lightweight, ballast mounted 10kw wind turbine. It does not require any drilling into the mounting surface and can be deployed in a variety of sizes and configurations (including on street lights). They currently cannot sell in NYC because the building code prohibits the roof mount installation of devices greater than 2kw. In addition, they have workforce issues, because the turbine requires electricians, roofers, and potentially crane operators for installation.

NuClimate is a chilled beam air handling systems with optimized air diffusion. They are currently selling their systems though a dealer network but have yet to make a sale in New York City. They face issues of finance, split incentives (landlord owns building, tenant pays utilities), workforce (they are non-union manufacturer), and policy (SED approval and qualification for NYSERDA incentives). Their product is 10% cheaper than existing VAV systems and results in 20% to 50% energy savings depending on whether they are compared to a system with electric or water reheating.

Tenrehte Technologies is a wi-fi based technology that allows you to fully power down energy intensive equipment remotely. They have never sold in the New York CIty market and face challenges related to consumer behavior and industry standards. They can demonstrate energy efficiency savings of 25% to 30% with limited upfront costs.
