NYC Energy Tools offers much more than equipment lending. For the first time in one place, we’ve collected resources developed by operations and maintenance experts from the CUNY Building Performance Lab and DCAS to help municipal agency employees carry out energy-reduction projects in their facilities. Below find a short description of every resource on this site and how to use it.
