NYSERDA Announces First Contract Awards for $30 Million RetrofitNY Initiative

7group has been selected by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) to serve as one of three Integrative Design coach/facilitators for NYSERDA’s RetrofitNY program. RetrofitNY is a $30 million program funded over 10 years and made available through the State’s Clean Energy Fund. It intends to bring a substantial portion of New York’s affordable housing units to or near net-zero energy over the next decade.

7group will be working with two of the six project teams to whom NYSERDA awarded design contracts for this High-Performance Retrofit Solutions pilot program in late June 2018. These contracts are the initial step for RetrofitNY, a first-of-its-kind program in the U.S. launched earlier this year by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo. The program is intended to create standardized, scalable deep energy-efficient retrofit solutions that can be replicated throughout the entire housing industry and support Governor Cuomo’s goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 40 percent by 2030.

The two project teams with whom 7group will be working are:

  • The Levy Partnership: working with Joint Ownership Entity (JOE) NYC, the owner, on a six-story, 21-unit building in Harlem.
  • Bright Power: working with Volmar Construction, the owner, on a five-story, 42-unit building in the Bronx.

More information can be found in NYSERDA’s announcement of these contracts being awarded to the pilot program design teams.
