Clean Energy Financing: Collaboration in New York State
NYSERDA and HCR co-developed and launched a pilot called the Clean Energy Initiative ("CEI") program, which integrates technical assistance and clean energy funding through NYSERDA's support into HCR’s affordable housing finance application process. This panel will cover the collaboration, program design, opportunity for scaling, and lessons learned to date, as well as highlighting a project currently participating in the CEI program. We will discuss the benefits of the interagency collaboration, highlighting the agencies' joint efforts in reaching CLCPA carbon reduction goals, and how HCR is incorporating the initiative throughout the agency.
