Heat Recovery Project Development (5547)

Due Date:  Continuous


The Heat Recovery Program provides cost-share for technical assistance to support the inclusion of heat recovery energy conservation measures while retrofitting existing buildings. Multifamily, commercial, institutional, industrial, and manufacturing buildings and facilities are eligible. Funded activities include two categories:
Category 1: Heat Recovery Opportunity Assessments
Category 1 is open-enrollment and provides funding to document current building infrastructure, quantify rejected heat from current operations, and explore potential cost-effective measures to recover and reuse heat to reduce total energy consumption. The goal of the assessment is to provide building owners with actionable data to inform their decision-making to move forward with heat recovery project design. Rejected heat from existing building ventilation, cooling, and wastewater should be considered in the assessment, as well as the potential to incorporate thermal storage. 
Applicants can receive funding for up to 75% or a maximum of $40,000 to create and deliver completed opportunity assessments. 
Category 2: Heat Recovery Project Design
Category 2 is open-enrollment and provides funding to develop a technically and economically feasible project design to implement a heat recovery system in an existing property. Recovery from ventilation, cooling, wastewater systems, and other internal processes are eligible, as is the inclusion of thermal storage measures to maximize the usefulness of recovered energy

Applicants can receive funding for up to 75% or a maximum of $80,000 to create and deliver completed designs. These designs should have the potential to significantly improve the heat recovery performance of existing buildings in New York, as determined by NYSERDA.
Participation in Category 1 is not a requirement to participate in Category 2.
