The schools will use the money to develop comprehensive and cost-effective energy-saving programs.

The State of New York has awarded $5 million to four colleges and universities to help them develop energy savings programs.

The Energy to Lead Competition has awarded funds to:

  • The City College of New York Building Performance Lab, $1.4 million: It will develop a control-based, systematic process for facilities staff and building operators to increase their ability to effectively manage and properly commission major energy consuming systems on campus.
  • New York Medical College, $1.3 million: It will create a campuswide, direct digital control building management system that will combine existing systems with new, advanced controls to create a single system for campus HVAC, chiller and boiler pumps, and lighting controls.
  • Syracuse University, $1.3 million: It will conduct a retrofit project on an existing 8-unit campus residence hall, and work to achieve net zero energy performance. The project will evaluate the impact of renewable energy sources, high efficiency systems, and occupant-centric smart building controls to increase energy savings.
  • Vassar College, $1.1 million: It will construct a net zero emission building for the college's Institute for the Liberal Arts along with a dashboard that reports construction and installation progress. It will feature real-time data monitoring to demonstrate project impacts and outcomes.
