Retrofitting NYC's Multifamily Buildings
Event Description

To achieve a low-carbon future, we’ll need to transition our buildings from burning fossil fuels to using electricity for heating and hot water. This process, known as electrification, will bring a heating revolution to the New York City multifamily building sector and requires an equally comprehensive effort from the city government and industry. 

For our just-released report, Going Electric: Retrofitting NYC's Multifamily Buildings, Urban Green consulted with more than 40 advisors from the real estate, energy efficiency, HVAC manufacturing, utility and government sectors to learn why so few multifamily buildings have invested in these retrofits and what must be done to change this trajectory.

This live webinar will examine the report findings, including identifying primary barriers for multifamily buildings to invest in retrofits and nine steps to address these barriers in the next five years.
