New York Power Authority Selects C3 IoT to Enable Sustainable Energy Goals

By Ken Briodagh April 26, 2018

C3 IoT, an AI and IoT software platform, recently announced that the New York Power Authority (NYPA) has selected C3 IoT to provide the AI software foundation for NYPA's strategic plan to empower customers to be smart, engaged stewards of their energy efficiency goals. NYPA’s statewide energy efficiency program is part of New York State's Reforming the Energy Vision strategy to lead on climate change and grow New York's clean energy economy.

“Our partnership with C3 IoT is an important step in NYPA's journey to become the nation's first end-to-end digital utility,” said Gil Quiniones, President and CEO, NYPA. “We envision a future where customers play an increasingly vital role in understanding and managing their energy usage more efficiently - whether that's to optimize productivity, reduce costs, or decrease their carbon footprint. Together, we are leveraging next-generation technology to take advantage of the new energy landscape and the opportunities it presents for our customers.”

Under a multi-year agreement, NYPA will deploy C3 Energy Management, a software-as-a-service (SaaS) AI-based application as part of its New York Energy Manager (NYEM).

Headquartered in Albany, NYEM is a digital energy service that provides more than 11,000 buildings with data on their energy use and expenditures. NYPA estimates that NYEM will continue to scale up to 20,000 buildings by 2020. These milestones will help New York meet its aggressive energy efficiency targets, including a recently announced 2025 target that incentivizes building owners to pursue building improvements to reduce energy consumption by 185 trillion BTUs (British thermal units) below forecasted energy use in 2025, the equivalent to the energy consumed by 1.8 million New York homes.

This engagement is part of a larger journey that the Authority is embarking on to provide the next level of data-enabled energy management services to its customers. With C3 IoT, NYPA will be positioned to offer a full range of digital energy services to its customers, including building energy load forecasting, fault detection and diagnostics, continuous optimization of energy use, dynamic demand response, solar and energy storage monitoring, and aggregation and dispatch of buildings as distributed energy resources.

“We are making a significant investment in C3 IoT as a strategic technology partner to fulfill NYPA's mission to put our customers at the center of everything we do,” said Emilie Bolduc, VP, NYEM. “By leveraging the most innovative tools and technologies available, the addition of the C3 Energy Management application on the NYEM platform will allow NYPA to provide even more transparency and openness about our customers' energy performance, empowering all of us to achieve the best outcomes possible.”
