Energy Management

The DCAS Energy Management (DEM) is the hub for energy management in City buildings. DCAS plays a critical role in supporting our agency partners' progress towards the City's major emissions reduction and energy objectives. These goals include:

  1. 80x50, a carbon reduction goal to reduce 80 percent of New York City’s overall emissions, for City government operations and the private sector, by 2050 (using Fiscal Year 2006 as the baseline for City government operations).
  2. 40x25and 50x30, carbon reduction goals to reduce 40 percent emissions for City government operations by 2025 and 50 percent by 2030, as steps toward 80x50, and in line with the landmark Local Law 97. See our plan and our progress so far.
  3. 100MWx25, a goal to install 100 megawatts of solar photovoltaic systems on City buildings by 2025.
  4. 20x30, a commitment of 20% reduction in building energy consumption by 2030.

DEM works with agencies to take actions to meet the City’s ambitious climate mandates and commitments. To that end, we provide agency partners with the following eight services:

  • strategic planning and technical guidance
  • embedded energy staff and training
  • funding for energy projects and programs
  • contracting resources for energy projects and programs
  • energy-efficient operations and maintenance support
  • turnkey implementation of energy efficiency and clean energy projects
  • utility account management and metering, and
  • utility energy supply.
