Empire State Sets New Energy Efficiency Targets (Ind. Report)
New York State Public Service Commission
Date: 2020-01-20
In the Big Apple, the New York State Public Service Commission (PSC) reports approval of new energy efficiency and electric heat pump targets aimed at dramatically reducing energy consumption in the state.

The new targets for investor-owned utilities are expected to attract roughly $2 billion in market-enabling investments to help transform the way New York residents and businesses heat and cool their homes and offices and move towards cleaner and healthier buildings and communities statewide.

Combined with other State initiatives, the new targets are expected to deliver a 3 pct reduction in annual electric usage and a 1.3 pct cut in annual natural gas usage by 2025.

Together with the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), the New York Power Authority (NYPA), the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) and a previous PSC order on efficiency, New York State in energy efficiency and clean heat investments from 2020 through 2025 will total $6.8 billion.

Syracuse Funded $1.4 Mn for Building Energy Modeling (Funding)
Syracuse University
Date: 2019-11-15
The Syracuse University College of Engineering and Computer Science (ECS) is reporting receipt of $1.4 million in US DOE funding to support a three-year project called Aerial Intelligence for Retrofit Building Energy Modeling (AirBEM). The funding will allow Syracuse researchers to extend their collaborations to develop an innovative system that improves energy modeling of existing buildings and building interiors using "aerial intelligence" acquired by drones equipped with infrared sensors and onboard processors to audit the exterior envelope. The drones will use computer vision algorithms to detect both materials and heat transfer anomalies, which suggest construction defects, such as air leaks.

The concept for AirBEM originated at Syracuse University with initial seed funding from SyracuseCoE. Subsequently, AirBEM collaborators developed the concept using additional support from the Office of Research, the Campus as a Laboratory for Sustainability program and others.
