NYC Municipal Energy Use
Energy use for all New York City agencies and public institutions is tracked centrally by DCAS Energy Management using Energy Cost Control and Conservation (EC3). The EC3 reports available below show the City's energy use and GHG emissions by agency on a monthly and annual basis. EC3 reports are not weather-normalized, but data can be adjusted for weather using Heating and Cooling Degree Day Data (Excel opens in new window).

NYC Municipal Energy Budget
DCAS Energy Management purchases energy for City agencies, tracks use and billing, and works with the Mayor's Office of Management and Budget to develop the City's annual energy budget.

The Fiscal Year 2012 budget for utility purchases for New York City agencies and public institutions is $871.6 million. 93% of the budget is City funded; the rest is paid for through state funding, user charges, and other sources. Approximately 74% of budgeted energy dollars are spent on electricity, 9% on steam, and 16% on natural gas.* The remaining 1% of the budget is payment for energy conservation measures installed by NYPA under the ENCORE program. Most electricity is supplied by the New York Power Authority (NYPA). Natural gas is purchased from various vendors and is delivered by Con Ed and National Grid, depending on location. Steam is purchased from Con Ed for heating, and in some cases, cooling buildings in Manhattan south of 96th St.

*Agencies purchase their own fuel oil.
