Energy Wise

EnergyWise Partners (EWP) provides energy metering and online billing services that enable the creation of locally owned renewable energy utilities, disrupting the highly fragmented Heating Oil and Propane delivery markets. We focus on clean, renewable solar energy stored in the ground and concentrated into the home with a ground-source heat pump (GSHP). Called "geothermal" heating and cooling in the US, the up-front cost of installation keeps most homes and businesses bound to the high price of traditional fuels.

EWP overcomes the financial barrier by enabling a Utility model for Geothermal similar to Power Purchase Agreements for Solar. Private investors, property managers and consumer cooperatives can then invest in the superior returns of geothermal energy while bringing the many economic and environmental benefits to consumers and tenants. The consumer simply pays for the thermal energy brought into the home through a multi-year contract.

RNY Solar

Efficiency Focused CPV

RNY Solar LLC was formed in 2009 to commercialize a novel concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) system that converts sunlight into electrical power using proprietary spectral-splitting technology.

RNY Solar's CPV Module is expected to establish a new commercial record of 40 percent for "system efficiency" for solar-to-electricity conversion. The current "best in class" system efficiency is 28 percent.

RNY Solar has also recently won a NYSERDA grant to construct a novel solar-powered photobioreactor illumination system that is expected to increase the growth rate of algae 350%. Algae harvested from the photobioreactor is subsequently used as an economical feedstock for biofuel production.
