 Urban Green Conference, October 4, 8:30am-12:30pm, New York, NY
Event Description

Three years ago, New York committed to reducing citywide carbon emissions 80 percent by 2050. The framework included three components:

1. Cut building energy use in half,
2. Transition to a low-carbon grid,
3. Electrify systems to reduce fossil fuel use in buildings.

However, the path to achieving all three legs by 2050 is cluttered with uncertainty, raising more questions than answers. Urban Green’s 2017 Conference will feature a robust dialogue on emerging energy and building technologies. Industry experts will examine the central assumptions about how we'll build and operate our buildings over the coming decades.
