NYSERDA New Construction Program

Novus has served as a NYSERDA New Construction Program (NCP) Technical Assistance (TA) provider since 2003, offering valuable TA services to a variety of new construction projects. Under this program, we work with building owners and design teams to identify the most cost effective energy efficiency design alternatives for their new facilities. This often includes such energy measures as:

  • Enhanced envelope
  • High performance glazing
  • High efficiency mechanical systems
  • High efficiency lighting systems and controls
  • Daylighting
  • Heat recovery ventilation
  • Demand controlled ventilation
  • High efficiency domestic hot water systems and water conservation

Depending on the size and scope of the project, Novus either develops a whole building simulation model or completes a custom measure analysis using pre-approved tools developed by NYSERDA. Incentives for energy savings projects are then calculated based on the improved performance compared to a baseline condition (generally based on state code requirements).
