Mentioned in the article are Radiator Labs, 475 High Performance Building Supply, BlocPower and Enertiv, all graduates of the Future Labs at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering.

Brooklyn-based 475 High Performance Building Supply has had some successes since its 2012 founding, most notably its role in helping build North America's first high-rise "passive house." … Marshall Cox, who founded Radiator Labs in 2011, can even boast of having his type of product mentioned in the City Council bill. … Cox built the company at NYU Tandon's clean-energy incubator and has been ramping up deployment of the insulated steel covers since a report from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority a year ago showed they could reduce heating costs by an average of 25%. He has 3,000 covers in about 25 buildings, is installing 5,000 more in 15 buildings and is doubling staff to 20 employees at the company's Brooklyn Navy Yard headquarters.
