NYSERDA awards Syracuse University, Clarkson energy-efficiency grants

By Eric Reinhardt


The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) has awarded Syracuse University and Clarkson University energy-efficiency grants of $100,000.

The office of Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced the grant awards Thursday.

Recipients will use the funding to explore new technologies to increase energy efficiency in buildings while helping to grow business in the building-construction sector. 

Syracuse University will use its $100,000 grant to work on a single-stage, air-filtration technology with the goal of removing the need for a two-filter system for gaseous and particulate pollutants in heating and cooling applications.

With its grant, Clarkson seeks to integrate a sensor and control network with a modeling system to create a system that the school can use to model occupancy behavior and help reduce energy use.

The grant awards represent the third of six rounds of funding under NYSERDA’s Advanced Buildings program, which will provide a total of $25 million through 2015, Cuomo’s office said.

Through the program, NYSERDA is partnering with manufacturers, research scientists, building owners, and property managers interested in developing, and applying new and emerging energy-efficient technologies.
