NY State Energy Research and Development Authority – Clean Energy Software RFP

New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) helps New York residents increase energy efficiency and save money. NYSERDA is issuing an RFP to select a vendor to develop a Benchmarking Software Tool for an upcoming Clean Energy Communities program. Also, it will be an “off-the-shelf” type tool used to capture and report on building information and utility data shared to NYSERDA’s ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager account.

The purpose of this software RFP is to maintain building data for the facilities in local Battle of the Buildings campaigns across New York. In addition, the selected vendor must import building data from ESPM into the tool daily. In conclusion, the data from the tool will help the state to better understand the energy, sustainability, and budgetary performance of buildings and how NYSERDA can improve the efficiency of these buildings.
