New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) offers objective information analysis, innovative programs, technical expertise, and funding to help New Yorkers increase energy efficiency, save money, use renewable energy, and reduce reliance on fossil fuels.

Real Time Energy Management (RTEM) continuously monitors real-time, granular level data from the cloud and transforms it into actionable information for building owners, managers, and operators to maximize energy performance, prevent operational stray, improve equipment/building optimization and more clearly define capital investment recommendations for NY State buildings. Incentives are offered to offset the cost of implementation of a RTEM system and NYSERDA will cost share up to 30% of overall RTEM expenses. Ongoing support is provided for NY business to reap the benefits of optimized building performance including reduced energy consumption and related costs.

This one page fact sheet outlines the multiple benefits of Real Time Energy Management and includes a link to obtain a listing of NYSERDA-qualified vendors under this program.
