Funding Aimed at New York’s Multi-Modal Transportation System
The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority has $3 million to invest in projects that may reduce the greenhouse gas emissions and associated energy consumption of the existing multi-modal transportation system in New York State.
NYSERDA has put out Program Opportunity Notice 3090 in partnership with NYSDoT, the New York State Department of Transportation.
“The sponsors seek to promote an integrated, multi-faceted, energy-efficient, and sustainable transportation system through the identification of innovative strategies, policies, emerging technologies and partnerships, and through useful demonstrations and system designs that validate underutilized commercial products in New York State,” NYSERDA says.
“Smart cities and communities focus on empowering travelers with innovative solutions and the right tools to connect to the right information.”
The solicitation names four focus areas:
- Active Transportation and Demand Management (ATDM) and Integrated Corridor Management (ICM);
- Freight Transportation Management and Logistics;
- Dynamic Mobility Applications; and
- Sustainable Transportation Alternatives.
Proposals under PON 3090 – Integrated Mobility Solutions for Smarter Cities and Communities – are due July 29. All must “offer readily quantifiable reductions in GHG emissions and transportation energy use in New York State with a clearly identified process for verifying these benefits.”
Awards could range as high as $500,000 – for projects that put underutilized commercial products to work in New York. “Teaming arrangements are not only encouraged,” NYSERDA says, “but may be necessary to achieve project success.”
