Fast Track to Equitable Electrification in NYC

In 2021, HPD and NYSERDA launched a joint $24 million pilot giving direct grants to HPD Preservation projects to (holistically) electrify hot water, space heating or both. This was possible by relying on HPD's rigorous oversight paired with dedicated Technical Assistance from Steven Winter Associates and Taitem Engineering. By Fall 2022, we will have our first cohort (nearly 175 housing units) under construction and be in the design stages with a second cohort. In this session we will present two case studies, discuss the process of selecting appropriate projects and optimizing the design, and share the numerous resources and tools that have been created.
