what is nyserda
The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority is a public benefit corporation established by the New York State Legislature in 1975. NYSERDA’s mission is to address the State’s energy and environmental challenges while improving the economy.What is NYSERDA?

NYSERDA’s Mission:

NYSERDA strives to encourage decisions involving energy that drive positive environmental and economic results.

LEED® EB is a certification tool for Existing Buildings.

It does not require a design team. Building Operators and Maintenance team can implement LEED® EB.

It addresses operations, maintenance and systems retrofits and upgrades.

Requirements of LEED® EB

Erosion and Sedimentation Control

Age of Building Prerequisite

Minimum Water Efficiency, Discharge Water compliance

EB Retro Cx

Minimum Energy Performance, Energy Star

Ozone Protection

Waste Stream Audit

Storage /Collection of Recyclables

Reduced Mercury Light Bulbs

Indoor Environmental Quality: Outside air, ETS, Asbestos

why is nyserda interested in leed eb
Retro CX on average increases building performance by 5-15%.1

Commissioning just 10% of the existing large commercial buildings in New York, with resulting average savings of 10%, would provide energy savings of approximately 288 million kWh annually and peak demand savings approaching 150 MW.1
