Under the programme, licensed home inspectors will deliver home energy ratings to home buyers as part of the pre-purchase inspection -- an independent third-party examination report detailing the condition of a home. The aim is to help purchasers understand the efficiency, comfort, and value of the home they are considering purchasing.
Home energy ratings are similar to vehicle miles per-gallon ratings, providing easy-to-understand visual reports that provide insight into how a home performs in areas like insulation, air sealing, heating and cooling efficiency, and water heating efficiency. With nearly 60 pct of home buyers considering a property that needs renovating, a home energy rating can provide a roadmap of energy efficiency opportunities that can be made after the purchase is complete.
Under the NYSERDA program, two home energy rating systems will be piloted: the US DOE Home Energy Score and the Pearl Home Certification from Pearl, a private residential energy efficiency certification firm. The pilot is being implemented in four phases through 2020.
Programme funding is from the state's 10-year, $5.3 billion Clean Energy Fund.

The largest investment is $10.4 million in Haida Gwaii, B.C. where the villages of Old Masset and Skidegate are planning to transition to 100 pct renewable energy -- increased power production from an existing hydro dam, and installation of 2 megawatts of solar power and power storage.
Other funding a includes a $1.5 million woody biomass heating project; a $2.1 million college building energy retrofit project; and
$1.5 million to Carbon Upcycling Technologies for a carbon capture and reuse project in Calgary. The Minister noted the federal government earmarked $1 billion in the last federal budget for energy efficiency initiatives.

According to the report, there are now nearly 3.4 million clean energy jobs in the U.S. outnumbering those in fossil fuels about three to one, and employers expect 6 percent job growth for 2019.
To continue clean energy employment growth, the report has several recommendations, including federal policies that support grid modernization and expanded EV charging infrastructure. It also calls for the end of rollbacks to fuel economy standards for vehicles and extending and upgrading expired energy efficiency tax credits for commercial and residential buildings.

To qualify for funding, a community must complete at least four of 10 high-impact clean energy actions to earn the designation, which recognizes community leadership in reducing energy use, cutting costs and driving clean energy. Local governments holding the designation can seek up to $250,000 to finance additional clean projects, or up to $100,000 if the community has fewer than 40,000 residents.
The high-impact actions municipalities can complete include:
To date, approximately 450 New York state local governments representing more than 86 pct of the state's population in 60 counties and all 10 Economic Development Council regions, have completed more than 1,250 high-impact actions.
The $16 million Clean Energy Communities initiative supports energy efficiency, renewable energy and sustainable development projects. The state's clean energy goal aims to supply 50 pct of its electricity from renewable energy resources and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 40 pct by 2030. (Source: Office of Gov.

The funds are being made available through the Commercial and Industrial Carbon Challenge, a pilot program testing the effectiveness of flexible funding for clean energy projects as opposed to traditional state-supported programs.
The initiative will provide awards of $2 million to $5 million to partially offset the development costs of projects that implement carbon-reducing clean energy actions in buildings with an aggregate 12-month average demand of 10 mw or more. Projects could include energy efficiency or distributed energy resources that help commercial and industrial customers to achieve carbon emissions reductions.
Proposals for the initiative must identify a three-year carbon emissions reduction target and a plan for achieving that target. Interested parties must submit proposals by July 10. Funding is provided through the State's 10-year, $5.3 billion Clean Energy Fund.
Commercial and industrial buildings account for 33 percent of the energy-related greenhouse gas emissions in New York State, according to NYSERDA. (Source: NYSERDA, 17 May, 2018) Contact: NYSERDA, Alicia Barton, Pres., CEO, (518) 862-1090, www.nyserda.ny.gov
