NYSERDA Natural Carbon Solutions Innovation Challenge - Due 08/20; Webinar 07/23

Opportunity Title:

Natural Carbon Solutions Innovation Challenge (PON 5180)



New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA)


Opportunity Number:




Provides funding for innovative approaches to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and advance New York’s clean energy goals.

NYSERDA is issuing Round 2 of funding for two Challenge Areas:

  • Innovations in Green Cooling: Research, development, and demonstration of tools, technologies and strategies that increase adoption, performance, and benefits of nature-based approaches to passive cooling, resilience, and reliability in extreme heat.

  • Carbon Negative Buildings: Demonstration, introduction and scale up of carbon negative products in New York State that support building energy efficiency.

Successful projects will be able to self-sustain beyond the period funded by NYSERDA, catalyze additional private investment if needed, and may inform changes to policy. Submissions must demonstrate significant improvements over the current state of practice with scalable approaches to address the goals of New York’s Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act, including GHG emissions reductions, benefits to rate payers, disadvantaged communities, resilience, and the environment.
