We led development of the technical policies for whole building incentive programs such as NYSERDA New Construction Program (NCP), the New Jersey Pay for Performance Program (P4P), and the Energize CT Whole Building Performance Program and reviewed hundreds of modeling-based submittals. Some of the documents that we developed for the incentive programs were adopted by the national programs including EPA ENERGY STAR Multifamily High Rise program and LEED NC v4. 

We contribute to the energy code development on the state and national level through staff participation on the ASHRAE Standard 90.1 committee, the New York Stretch Energy 2018 development team and advisory groups and the New York City Energy Conservation Code advisory committee among others. 

Examples of our research projects include “ASHRAE Standard 90.1 Performance Rating Method, PHIUS+, and PHI Comparative Evaluation Study” (funded by NYSERDA), “Feasibility Study to Investigate Translational Capacity of the Selected Whole Building Rating Systems” (funded by NYSERDA) and “Improving the Accuracy of Building Energy Modeling” (funded by NEMA).
