Integrated Data System

Assorted DER technologies: anaerobic digester, solar, wind, energy storage, and combined heat and power

DERs on this site include:

  • Solar
  • Energy Storage
  • Combined Heat and Power
  • Anaerobic Digester
  • Fuel Cell

DERs are electricity-producing resources like solar or controllable loads like energy storage/batteries that are connected to a utility customer within the local electricity distribution system.

Utility customers can include commercial, industrial, institutional and multifamily facilities as well as single-family residences.

This site provides information on DERs installed in New York, many of which received State incentives and report performance data to NYSERDA.

DERs can play a critical role in supporting Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA). The CLCPA codifies Governor Cuomo’s nation-leading goals as called for under his Green New Deal, mandating that at least 70% of New York's electricity come from renewable energy sources such as wind and solar by 2030, and that the state's power system is 100% carbon neutral by 2040. The CLCPA also codifies Governor Cuomo’s nation-leading commitments to install 6,000 megawatts of distributed solar by 2025 and 3,000 megawatts of energy storage by 2030.
