EPIC=Energy Program for Innovation Clusters
This program helps New York State companies accelerate development and commercialization of innovations for energy hardware to create Grid-Interactive and Energy & Efficient Buildings (GEBs). EPIC is funded by the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Technology Transitions and its Building Technologies Office. The goals are to strengthen the cluster of companies engaged with the GEB market, while promoting equity and public health in the built environment and supporting the nation’s transition to net-zero emissions.
Why Grid-interactive & Energy-Efficient Buildings?
Buildings account for more than 70% of U.S. electricity consumption and power sector CO2 emissions. Companies participating in the EPIC Buildings program will help turn buildings into clean, flexible energy resources by combining energy efficiency and demand flexibility with communications and smart technologies. American homes and buildings will be more affordable, comfortable and productive, while reducing power system costs, carbon emissions and stress on the grid – saving billions.
How can my company participate?
Tell us about your company by filling out the survey. Support is available for new and existing NYS companies who are innovating hardware products for buildings that increase energy-efficiency and healthfulness and that advance grid-integration and decarbonization goals. See examples of next generation products.
The EPIC Building project is allied with the CleanTech Center, a NYSERDA-funded incubator for companies commercializing clean energy technologies, offering support for entrepreneurs and early stage companies through incubation, acceleration and retention.
