“We must move beyond green buildings as demonstrations, or as trophies, or as tokens of our interest in the environment. The urgency for reducing climate emissions is too great…We must take our collective experience and use it toward making green design a part of all design.” -Ian Shapiro, Green Building Illustrated http://ow.ly/tHVHv
The Request for Information invites you to tell us about your market-ready, but not yet widely deployed, energy-saving technology for participation in an $800 million-and growing-marketplace of installation opportunities. The Energy Efficiency Innovation Collaborative (EE-INC), spearheaded by the New York Power Authority, is the newest link in Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s chain of economic development initiatives to advance innovative energy efficiency technologies by installing them in publically-owned facilities under the Build Smart NY program-ultimately growing new businesses and jobs. To learn more and to register, visit the EE-INC web site, http://www.eeinc-ny.com/Home.aspx. To view the press release, visit http://www.eeinc-ny.com/PDF/NYPALaunchesEEINC.pdf.
Taitem Engineering is providing program management for the collaborative, and is a subject matter expert on the design and implementation of emerging technologies. Taitem will implement technology demonstrations to showcase emerging innovations.
