architects, energy engineers, mechanical,
electrical and plumbing engineers, general
contractors, builders, renewable energy
developers and manufacturers and highperformance component manufacturers
and suppliers, and Passive House and other
high-performance building specialists.
RetrofitNY will create a new model for
the entire housing industry and provide
environmental benefits to all New Yorkers.
It will help residents, building owners, the
industry and communities by creating
jobs and providing clean, energy efficient
homes while dramatically reducing
greenhouse gas emissions statewide. By
lowering operational costs through energy
efficiency, RetrofitNY will ultimately
enable housing agencies across the state to
preserve and build more units of affordable
housing. These newly retrofitted homes
will improve the quality of life for
affordable housing residents. They will also
provide critical support towards New York
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo's ambitious
goal to decrease energy consumption
in buildings by 23 percent and reduce
greenhouse gas emissions by 40 percent,
all by 2030.

Dutch program called Energiesprong,
which is responsible for thousands of
two-story row houses being retrofitted
to net zero energy performance. These
retrofits are completed in one week
while residents continue to live in their
homes. Energiesprong's first prototype
was done in December 2013 and cost
about $143,000. By summer 2016,
installation costs dropped by half while
performance improved to a 50 percent
reduction in energy consumption to
achieving net zero energy.
As of November 2017, about 2,000
retrofits have been completed in the

pipeline. The renovations dramatically
