Gov. Kathy Hochul’s announced the $12 million Heat Recovery Program to modernize buildings in New York State.
The endeavor focuses on decarbonization and retrofit projects that reuse heat to save energy and reduce fossil fuel use in buildings across the State. The practice of heat recovery, which is recuperating wasted heat and reusing it directly or storing it for later, helps build decarbonization and accelerates progress toward the State’s Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 85% by 2050.
In a statement Hochul said this new initiative will help increase the adoption of heat recovery solutions, make building operations more affordable, and promote a healthy living environment across the state.
