2020 - Present
ElectrifyNYC (Electrify New York City) is a free program that helps NYC 1-4 family homeowners save money, get more comfortable, improve air quality, and connect with contractors and programs.
NYC is launching this program to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from 1-4 family homes, to meet our citywide goal of bringing our carbon emissions to zero by 2050.
2019 - Present
The Con Edison Multifamily Energy Efficiency Program (MFEEP) offers incentives for installing energy-efficient electric and gas equipment and technologies. Energy efficiency can help improve the bottom line by reducing energy use and maintenance costs while increasing operating efficiencies. These upgrades can also help protect the environment.
The NYC Accelerator has relaunched its program after a suspension in services due to COVID-19. We provide free, personalized guidance to make cost-saving, energy-efficiency upgrades and reduce carbon emissions in New York City.
NYCHA Network for Climate Action
Pratt Center worked with Kinetic Communities Consulting to recruit residents for a newly created Climate Action Network. The team created and facilitated workshop series, which offered participants an opportunity to learn about NYCHA’s climate and sustainability plans, discuss how their needs can be better incorporated by NYCHA, and develop and participate in projects to promote sustainability and resilience in NYCHA developments.
Leading with Equity Initiative
For over nearly 15 years, American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (ACEEE) has released numerous scorecards and other progress reports to benchmark and drive clean energy action among states, localities, and utilities. Through these efforts, we aim to identify best practices and set a high bar for identifying clean energy leaders. Even so, we can do better. To help ensure that everyone has equitable access to and benefits from clean energy investments, ACEEE—with support from the Barr Foundation, the Kresge Foundation, and The JPB Foundation and in collaboration with Kinetic Communities Consulting and AEClinic—is launching our Leading with Equity Initiative.
Roundtable for Energy Affordability in Low-Income Groups and Neighborhoods (“REALIGN”) was a “no-wrong door” referral process of energy service providers and organizations as part of a New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) Community Energy Engagement Program Regional Specific Initiative project.
