Resilient Energy

Advancing energy storage for a sustainable urban future

A collaboration between the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) and Newlab, the Resilient Energy Studio cultivates local energy storage capacity by co-creating solutions with environmental justice communities, entrepreneurs, and leading industry stakeholders to advance energy storage for a sustainable urban future.

The Studio supports goals that are critical to New York City’s climate agenda, such as reducing greenhouse gas emissions and pollution in disproportionately impacted environmental justice communities, and increasing the amount of renewable energy that can be stored and utilized as back-up power sources. Leveraging test sites across New York City, the Studio is partnering with local leaders to align around areas of opportunity to pursue through pilot projects. The Studio will recruit a cohort of companies to test technologies in real-world environments and advance new storage concepts, designs, and features that create community benefit and yield valuable insights for scaling urban energy storage solutions.
