NYS Launches Second Round of “Energy to Lead” Challenge to Colleges and Universities
New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo has launched Energy to Lead 2017, the second round of a challenge to colleges and universities in the state to develop clean-energy solutions that significantly decrease greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, reduce energy bills, and improve resiliency for their campuses and surrounding communities. Part of the REV Campus Challenge, the $3 million competition supports New York’s commitment to reduce GHG emissions by 40 percent by 2003 and promote a statewide clean-energy economy. Energy to Lead 2017 is administered by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), a NYSSGC member, and is open to two- or four-year public or private colleges or universities in NYS. Per-project funding awards will range from $250,000 to $1 million. For the Governor’s press release, click here.
