PON 2606 - Advanced Buildings Program Round 6 *UPDATED 

Sponsor:           New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA)

Deadlines:         Final: 9/17/2015 *UPDATED

Summary:          NYSERDA seeks proposals for development and demonstration activities that advance the energy performance of both new and existing buildings in the residential, multi-family or commercial sector. Technology areas of interest include, but are not limited to: construction materials, strategies and practices; HVAC and lighting technologies, automation technologies enabling load flexibility and smarter background operations; and building integrated renewable energy systems. Energy improvements in buildings can also result from activities that do not involve development of new products or construction methods; improvements can result from new policies, regulations or assessments. NYSERDA also seeks proposals for activities to remove inadvertent barriers that hinder the wider use of promising technologies. Added consideration will be given to technologies and opportunities that in addition to improving the energy and environmental performance, increase building resiliency, recovery, and adaptability to disruptions in the electric grid. The total available funding under six rounds of this solicitation is $25 million.
