As a member of the NYC Solar Partnership with Sustainable CUNY and the Mayor's Office, NYCEDC has helped solar energy in New York City grow by over 800% in the past five years, making solar a competitive renewable energy source.
NYCEDC is seeking an operator with a large entrepreneurship network, proven business-development success, and experience with securing and managing real estate to develop and launch the Urban Technology Growth Hub.
RISE : NYC is a global competition to identify and deploy new and innovative technologies to prepare New York City small businesses for the impacts of future storms, sea level rise, and other effects of climate change.
Solar technology is helping New Yorkers recover from the unprecedented power outages caused by Hurricane Sandy. With several of the City’s hardest hit areas still without power, businesses, nonprofits and volunteers have come together to install mobile solar generators where they are needed most.
