ERS excels at providing technical expertise with comprehensive or focused energy audits. We also provide technical support for CHP and Energy Storage programs in NYC to help end users optimize operations.
ERS is an approved provider for NYSERDA’s FlexTech program. The FlexTech Program allows us to offer energy assessments and LL87 support services with financial assistance from NYSERDA.
ERS conducts feasibility studies for campuses, buildings, processes, and end-use equipment and develops comprehensive plans to guide long-term capital planning and facility management.
ERS leverages our extensive experience with current utility electric and gas charges to match a customer’s building load to the lowest cost rates. We are experienced at evaluating PACE projects for the Green Bank.
Local Law 87 (LL87) mandates that buildings over 50,000 gross square feet undergo a periodic energy audit and retro-commissioning measures, and file energy efficiency and retrocommissioning reports with the Department of Buildings once every ten years. ERS can perform the necessary auditing and file the correct information with the City. ERS is here to also help owners and operators go beyond the basics and identify ways to address the key insights of the audit.
In April 2019, New York City passed the Climate Mobilization Act, which includes Local Law 97 (LL97), becoming the first city in the world to put limits on carbon emissions for buildings. These emissions limits scale down over time, with the first coming into effect in 2024 and the next, much lower limit, in 2030. The law applies to most buildings in NYC over 25,000 square feet. Large fines can be issued for buildings exceeding their emissions limits.
ERS staff takes pride in staying current with the latest energy efficiency and renewable technologies and best practices, in the context of new rules and regulations. ERS offers a site-specific, holistic approach to energy master planning, auditing, RFP development and unbiased implementation support, which leads to lower costs and better results. With our decades of work with NYSERDA and Con Edison, we have intimate knowledge of available incentive programs and know how to navigate through the various programs and identify appropriate opportunities for our customers.
