Event Description

NESEA's BuildingEnergy NYC conference is designed by and for practitioners in the fields of high-performance building and design, energy efficiency, renewable energy, and building/energy policy. Conference sessions and showcase demos offer best practices and lessons learned, case studies and proven data, technical "how-to"s, emerging technologies, and innovative policies and programs. If you are a professional in the built environment in any stage of your training and career, plan to immerse yourself in a day of networking and intensive learning. 

2022 Theme: Bridging the Gap

The theme of the 2022 conference is Bridging the Gap. Those of us who work in building energy and sustainability are intensely aware of the gaps between where we stand now and where we need to be, as a sector and as a society. There are gaps in technology, in skills, in financing, in equity, and in many other areas.

At this year’s conference, we are seeking to directly address those gaps through the following topics:

  • The Skill Gap: As our sector undertakes increasingly urgent and aggressive strategies to move away from fossil fuels, how can we prepare a workforce that is equipped for the challenges ahead? How can we retrain existing professionals to succeed within new and changing frameworks?
  • The Technology Gap: From heat pumps to energy storage, what are the most effective technologies on the market, and how can we deploy them most effectively? How can we ensure that new systems are sized and implemented to maximize efficiency, while accounting for both operational and embodied carbon?
  • The Finance Gap: What financing resources are available to make decarbonization possible and affordable? From boardrooms to lenders to government agencies, where do we need to educate the necessary stakeholders in order to take advantage of those resources?
  • The Equity Gap: How can we ensure that our work empowers owners, occupants, operators, and building professionals from marginalized groups? What do solutions look like that result in greater equity and broader ownership alongside energy savings?
