New York Joins Better Buildings Accelerator to Foster Combined Heat and Power

On May 13, 2016, the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) announced its partnership with the Department of Energy's (DOE) Better Buildings Combined Heat and Power Resiliency Accelerator to foster combined heat and power (CHP) technologies for improved efficiency and enhanced resiliency. Multi-strategy initiatives such as the Better Buildings and Energy Data Accelerators, working in partnership with state and local governments, will have direct impact on utility Demand Side Management Portfolios, and the outcomes of state policies, such as those set in New York, could set precedent in other regions.
