Getting to 80 x 50 in NYC Buildings, June 29
Event Description

The energy used in the City’s diverse building stock is the largest contributor of greenhouse gas emissions, responsible for more than two-thirds of the citywide total. Yet more than 90 percent of existing buildings will still be around in 2050, posing a serious challenge to achieving long-term emissions reductions once short-term inexpensive upgrades are made.

Successfully retrofitting heating and cooling systems to ultra-low consumption or net zero standards through updated energy performance standards and new technologies will both play a critical role in giving New Yorkers more control over their energy bills, and reaching our 80 x 50 goal.

Join the NYLCV Education Fund on June 29th for a morning of discussions on these important topics as we work to chart the course to achieving the City's 80 x 50 goal.
