Conservation Services Group (CSG) has helped people from across the U.S. find ways to use energy wisely where we live and work by designing and delivering energy efficiency and clean energy programs that are innovative, cost effective and get the job done! At CSG, our expertise is deep and wide-ranging—and backed by years of real-world experience in all energy-related areas. We have unequalled expertise in building sciences, health and safety, marketing, public policy, appliance recycling, energy efficiency programs for residential and commercial buildings, renewable energy development, and much more. We have a broad and deep knowledge of quality analysis, quality control and all areas of implementing these programs and processes.
Energy Federation, Inc. (EFI) has grown to become one of the leading residential distributors of energy efficiency-related products in the United States. Underlying EFI's mission today is the belief that a key obstacle to increased energy and water efficiency is inadequate awareness of, and access to, good quality resource conservation-related products. It is insufficient to simply recognize the benefits associated with reducing inefficient energy and water consumption - people actually need to be able to find and purchase these types of products. EFI uses multiple approaches to address this issue, through three business groups, a Consumer Division, Wholesale Division, and a Utility Programs Division.
NYSERDA (New York State Energy Research and Development Authority) is a public benefit corporation created in 1975 under Article 8, Title 9 of the State Public Authorities Law through the reconstitution of the New York State Atomic and Space Development Authority.

Today, NYSERDA’s aim is to help New York meet its energy goals: reducing energy consumption, promoting the use of renewable energy sources, and protecting the environment.
