The Net Zero Portfolio Support program offers assistance to large real estate portfolio owners, across all sectors, in developing performance standards and institutional mechanisms to enable the design, construction, and operation of Net Zero buildings. Entities receiving NYSERDA support must establish an institutional definition of Net Zero, and must publicly commit to this Net Zero policy for future design, construction, renovation, and operation, for the whole portfolio or a clearly defined subset thereof.
NYSERDA will provide up to one hundred percent of the costs, up to a maximum amount of $250,000, for the development of portfolio-wide protocols, guidance documents, employee and contractor training procedures, peer design review, prototype designs, details, and specifications, or other similar activities. The assistance will be provided by a Primary Energy Consultant (PEC) approved through NYSERDA’s RFP 3771.
The assistance offered through this solicitation is for portfolio-wide initiatives. The design, construction, renovation, and operation of individual buildings will not be funded through this program.
