Get Incentives for Cutting-Edge Energy Management Technology

Real-Time Energy Management (RTEM) systems optimize your facility’s energy performance, saving you money and making building occupants more comfortable.

RTEM works with your existing Building Automation System (BAS) and uses additional sensors and advanced analytics to:

  • Visualize and manage your energy consumption and equipment performance
  • Diagnose faulty equipment systems in real time
  • Identify no- and low-cost operational improvements

RTEM systems identify opportunities to:

  • Save energy and money
  • Improve occupant comfort and productivity
  • Reduce maintenance costs and extend equipment life
  • Strategically plan capital investments

Eligibility Requirements

To be eligible, your building must:

  • Have a commercial or industrial use, with at least 300 kW of average peak electrical demand
  • Have Con Edison gas and/or electric service
  • Have an existing Building Automation System (BAS) or Building Management System (BMS)
  • Have not received Con Edison BAS/BMS incentives or NYSERDA RTEM incentives
  • Comply with all other eligibility criteria in the RTEM Pilot Program Manual (PDF)

How It Works


  1. Find a participating contractor
  2. Submit a RTEM Program Application (PDF) to install a qualified RTEM system
  3. Install your RTEM system and implement its recommendations to improve building operations
  4. Apply for incentives based on the energy you’ve saved
  5. RTEM incentives cover up to 50% of RTEM system and service costs
