Residential Market Advisory Group (RMAG) Virtual Meeting Webinars
The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) developed the Residential Market Advisory Group (RMAG) to bring together residential market actors and stakeholders to envision the next generation of residential energy efficiency solutions. The RMAG helps guide NYSERDA’s development of offerings that spur market growth, deliver customer value, and enable achievement of New York State’s clean energy goals.
This fall’s RMAG meeting will take place through several webinars over the next few weeks, with the opening webinar this Friday, October 2.
The webinars will be an opportunity to learn more about NYSERDA’s initiatives to meet the State’s clean energy goals and provide feedback on current and future residential initiatives. We would like to invite you to participate in the upcoming webinars.
October 2 | 10:30-12:00 p.m. ET
The Opening Webinar will kick off this webinar series with a review of webinar objectives and the current state of the NY residential energy market. Topics will include NYSERDA updates, review of the NY Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act, and opportunities partnering with the Joint Utilities of New York. This webinar will also include interactive exercises using the Poll Everywhere tool to engage and gather feedback from participants.
Working Group Sessions
