New York, NY (November 16, 2021) — The Clean Fight New York, a not-for-profit climate-tech accelerator supported by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) and New Energy Nexus, today announced its second cohort of startups working to decarbonize and electrify the mass of New York’s non-luxury residential and commercial buildings including below market rate, affordable housing.

As building infrastructure generates 30% of New York State’s carbon emissions and 70% of New York City’s, the startups selected are creating the innovative technologies and services to enable the deep decarbonization of buildings through electrification, advanced efficiency, demand flexibility and resilience. By zeroing in on older, Class B and C buildings, these startups are staged to generate equitable climate impacts while providing health, comfort, and savings benefits to frontline and underserved communities most impacted by the climate crisis.
