NYSERDA Seeks Project Proposals

February 2, 2003
ALBANY, N.Y. — The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) has announced a program to support the development and demonstration of innovative heating and cooling technologies for residential and commercial buildings. The proposed technologies must achieve increased energy efficiency or environmental performance. Multiple awards of up to $250,000 are expected, and $1million is available. All proposals are preferred to be cost-shared at or above 50 percent. Cost sharing may include cash, labor, materials, or other allowable expenses.

Multiphase projects may be proposed, but NYSERDA support for additional phases will be subject to a review of the project’s continuing competitiveness, success to date, and availability of NYSERDA funds. Proposals for multiphase projects must include statements of work and budget estimates for all project phases.

Eligible technologies include, but are not limited to, space/domestic water heating, air conditioning and refrigeration, food-beverage vending machines, and renewable energy heating and cooling technologies.

Proposals are due 3 p.m. EST, on Apr. 23, 2003.
