The New York Energy Regional Innovation Cluster
The New York Energy Regional Innovation Cluster (NYE-RIC) is a statewide alliance focused on transforming how energy-efficient building systems are invented, developed, demonstrated and deployed. NYE-RIC includes internationally recognized research and development capabilities and engages more than 130 firms and institutions that have unmatched expertise to speed development and deployment of game-changing innovations by breaking down critical barriers in economics, policy, human behavior and technology integration.
The statewide NYE-RIC consortium is led by Syracuse University in partnership with City University of New York (CUNY), NYSTAR, and the SUNY Research Foundation. The Partnership for New York City and CenterState Corporation for Economic Opportunity have joined forces to unite support from throughout Downstate and Upstate New York, leveraging New York’s unmatched capabilities as a global leader in finance, policy, marketing, and research and development to build its regional innovation cluster for energy efficiency and renewable energy for the buildings sector. NYE-RIC is a regional strategy for economic development that uses higher education as regional anchors to support existing industry clusters and provide connections throughout the state, so that innovation and entrepreneurship can revitalize New York’s economy. NYE-RIC links technological innovation to the influential marketplace of New York City and breaks down barriers to entry to accelerate mass deployment of energy efficient technologies, and create jobs.
