Grant Funded Programs

Grant-funded programs are generally stand-alone initiatives designed to answer specific research questions or develop technologies or training products. CUNY BPL itself began as a seed grant from NYSERDA to our parent organization, the CUNY Institute for Urban Systems, to create a New York City hub for building performance and operations research and promotion. NYSERDA has awarded BPL many grants in the years since and the relationship continues to this day; currently, a NYSERDA grant supports BPL’s work at the City College of New York under the REV Campus Challenge.

A grant from the U.S. Department of Energy is supporting the development of BuildingCoach, an online training and coaching platform that uses energy data from participants’ buildings.

A sampling of past grant-funded programs in which BPL was either the primary or a secondary awardee include:
